Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale. This exceptionally rare antique Asian hand carved Pagoda cabinet with silk tapestry lining.
The inside back board has a silk lined and stitched tapestry, in its own right this is a highly desirable and collatable piece of artwork. I work with furniture full time and look at thousands of pieces every month, I have never seen anything like this before, it looks to resemble a Buddhist temple of worship, the carving looks Chinese to me and it most likely was made as part of the export era. The cabinet has quite a few pieces, all the large carved dragons on the ends of the roof come off, the roof separates into three sections, the main body is one piece and then you have the base with the legs is another piece.
We have cleaned waxed and polished it from top to bottom, there are some small timber cracks here and there as you would expect based on the age, there is allot of sun discolouration under the sections which would have been kept in the shade. I can have the cabinet fully restored to include being lightly stripped back, stained all the same colour and French polished or wax finished, for a quote kindly ask.
