Transport yourself to the opulent grandeur of mid-19th-century China with this extraordinary low Chinese Kang cabinet. Hailing from the classical Tianjin area, this exquisite piece is a testament to the impeccable craftsmanship and timeless elegance of traditional Chinese furniture.

Skilfully fashioned from catalpa wood, renowned for its durability and lustrous grain patterns, this Kang cabinet boasts a rich and alluring old burgundy lacquer finish. The deep, earthy tones of the lacquer not only enhance the cabinet's visual appeal but also add a sense of age and history, reminiscent of the splendid heritage it carries.
