Chinese wedding cabinets, such as this antique hand-painted red lacquer wedding cabinet from the Shanxi Province, have an enchanting and romantic cultural connection. They were a sort of 'glory box', filled over the years by a girl or her mother with silks and linens and presented to her groom on the eve of their wedding. The bolt-secured brass panel on the doors is called a 'togetherness panel' and symbolises the joining of two halves for one love. Undeniably the mountain scene hand-painted in gold on the front makes it extra special. Display in a modern home as a hall cupboard, linen press, wine/cocktail cabinet or as storage for just about anything, particularly bulky items due to the capacious shelves.

Care Instructions
