Antique Chinese Temple Cabinet probably used as a Butsudan cabinet. SOLD
This cabinet was featured in ICON magazine.
Deep red painted temple cabinet with unusual legs from the Qing Dynasty. Appears to have been crafted by a well intentioned but primitive craftsman; perhaps a devotee to the temple in which it was housed. Irregular carvings and unusual legs make this temple cabinet a special find. Painted images are of symbolically auspicious fruits and flowers.
