Two chinoiserie bedside cabinets, painted a striking black and finished with lacquer. The intricate hand painted design on each cabinet depicts typical Chinese scenes of music and dance, and is framed by a gilded Greek key-style border. The cabinets themselves comprise of two pull-out top drawers, with a golden apple motif painted on. Two doors, secured by a brass key, complete the unit.
This set is in a really good condition for its age, and is a practical but eye-catching statement piece for most bedroom interior styles. However, these are versatile cabinets, and could be used as sofa-side tables, or for storage in any room.
Also available in a similar style is a chinoiserie room divider, again depicting Chinese pastoral images.
