This is such a beautiful and unusual piece. Originating in Shandong, China circa 1930, this was used to display and serve food. The raised section is for a cloth, which would cover the food and act as protection against insects. The wood, which is bamboo and elm, is really beautiful. There are two drawers and one storage area with beautiful hardware on the fronts. The corners have a metal strip which is a nice added detail. There are some nicks and scratches and the wood is chipped around the drawers but overall the piece is in good condition. The cabinet measures 38 1/2" in height, and is 25 3/4" square. The bottom part of the cabinet is 18" in height, 19 1/2" from left to right and 20" front to back. Weight is 31 lbs.
