Large Cabinets

Large Chinese cabinets were one of the backbones of classical Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) home decor. Homes were spacious and usually accommodated an extended family as well as plentiful service staff so the furniture needed to be proportionally large.

Hardwood cabinets with detailed carving and ornamentation would have been reserved for the master’s immediate family and other highly stationed relatives while plainer cabinets of more inferior woods were used to outfit the quarters of the balance of the household.

Style, shape and joinery techniques varied by region and province. These regional differences coupled with woods used help us identify age and province of origin for most of these antique Chinese cabinets.
