This incomparable chinoiserie black lacquer dresser depicts 12 mother of pearl figures in various tai chi poses. What more can you ask for really? As if that’s not enough, there’s plenty of traditional hand painted Asian motif from head to toe. The reds and greens appear as magical and irradiant as the subject of the art itself. Four drawers with brass handles open and close with ease. Finished on the back with a beautiful gilt bamboo against a solid black background.
The black lacquer looks great and has also been masterfully and subtly touched-up. The key to any restoration is making improvements without making it look as though anything has been done.
