Antique Chinese Worship Cabinet or Display Cabinet

Antique Buddhist Shrine Cabinet (Antique Chinese Worship Cabinet or Display Cabinet). This elegant late Qing Dynasty cabinet was probably used as a worship or a display cabinet. The open shelf is surrounded by carved lotus motif, with the same motif carved into the apron. The carving is well executed and done in a early traditional style, sometimes called 'scrolling grass'. This open area would traditionally have been used as the area in which to place a worship item or offerings. Today, it would still be nicely used as a worship or display cabinet but also as a bookcase or even a media cabinet: blue-ray, DVD, & music above and the screen below.

Inside the cabinet are two drawers and a spacious area with brackets for a shelf. Also available is a hidden compartment, accessed by lifting the wooden plank.

Ornamental brass escutcheons adorn the pull hinges for the 2 doors. The hardware is all original. This antique cabinet is a very good example of a 'softwood' piece imitating a classical hardwood piece. Also, the finish on the piece is often referred to as Zitan finishing. The finish is almost entirely intact and the lacquer has traces of silver.
