Pair of Antique Chinese Carved Kang Cabinets


This very fine and rare pair of matching kang cabinets date from the reign of Emperor Qianlong, 1736-1795. Due to their rareness, these cabinets must be sold as a pair. Price listed is for the pair.

Each cabinet has five top drawers and two doors which open to four doors, locked in place with a movable wooden pin. They feature intricate carvings of ruyi head clouds, long life patterns, and the five desirable blessings; represented by five bats carved on the side panels and the front apron. These cabinets exhibit wonderful wood grain patterns, which are relatively straight but unevenly textured. The finish is golden brown on all sides which glows through the natural wax finish. The finish is unrestored and in its original condition. The door hinges and drawer pulls are made of brass.

Huaimu, after drying, is quite stable and naturally resistant to moisture and insect damage.

A ruyi is a curved decorative object that is a ceremonial scepter in Chinese Buddhism or a talisman symbolizing power and good fortune in Chinese folklore. A traditional ruyi has a long S-shaped handle and a head fashioned like a fist, cloud, or lingzhi mushroom.
