Black and Gold Japanned Cupboard

  • H: 212 cm (83 7/16")
  • W: 120 cm (47 1/4")
  • D: 44 cm (17 5/16")

English late 19th Century black and gold japanned chinoiserie cupboard. Circa 1890.

The black background is extensively decorated with 17th Century style scenes of Chinese water gardens, including urns, pagodas and Eastern vignettes. All the decoration has been japanned by hand in gilt lacquer relief.

The top is fitted with shelves, and the base with drawers. Resting on bracket feet. 

Demand for oriental art was apparent in the Western world since its discovery, but it would fall in and out of fashion.

Towards the end of the 19th Century, it had developed into a full-blown craze as people coveted the exotic beauty of chinoiserie designs. 

This stunning cupboard is of useful scale and will make a unique feature in any room.
