Description

This beautiful Japanese cabinet was produced during the Meiji period of Japanese history. The form of the cabinet, and its mode of decoration, are typical of furniture produced in Japan during this time. The cabinet is of rectangular form and features a variety of cabinet doors of various shapes and sizes: one each to each top corner, and a series of six in the lower half, with the spaces between connected by stepped shelves. The surfaces throughout are intricately carved with abstracted, wave form motifs in low relief, while each cabinet door is inset with a cedar panel inlaid with ivory, mother-of-pearl, and shell depictions of flowers and birds. The cabinet is set above a flared apron, and raised by four feet connected by a shaped stretcher.
