This is a fine and rare late 19th century Chinoiserie wardrobe dating from around 1890. The fabulous rich deep burgundy red lacquer is stunningly detailed with wonderful traditional Chinese scenes much of which is raised in relief with beautiful gilding. The robe is quality constructed in solid mahogany with hand painted detail throughout, sponged marbling and hand applied gilt highlights with stencilled borders.
The wardrobe is a very rare piece indeed, particularly in this fine rich burgundy shade which is exceptionally hard to find.
