Chinese Antique Meditation Shrine Cabinet with Coffer Base

Antique Chinese Meditation Shrine Cabinet (Chinese Antique Meditation Shrine Cabinet with Coffer Base). This is a very versatile piece. Traditionally, it was used as a shrine for daily meditation and prayer by a Chinese family and in which they would have placed keepsakes, offerings and other items honoring deceased family ancestors. Today it can be used in the same manner and also as a display cabinet for collectibles, china or stemware. The lacquer finish is original and in excellent condition. The fine pierced carvings on the shrine contrasts with the simple solid lines of the coffer base. The coffer portion of the cabinet offers additional storage space. On either side of the coffer base are elongated carved and scalloped spandrels. There are two stretchers between the side legs. The lotus bud carved finials, originally lacquered green, and the carved lotus lappet of the serrated crown molding give extra dimension to the shrine. The top panels are carved in various flowering patterns. The side panels feature an interesting circular lattice work pattern. The upper interior area has been darkened over time by the burning of candles and incense.
