    A pair of exquisite Chinese lacquered chests each beautifully inlaid with elaborate scenes of life in China depicted in Mother of Pearl, bone Ivory and hard stones. These are early examples.
    The scenes are created so that they "read across" from one cabinet to another. The both have shelves immediately under their top surfaces and cupboards towards the bottom with swing open doors.
    Each is in good antique condition. Each measures 56cms across by 95cms high by 26cms deep. They could be displayed immediately side by side or would also look stunning on either side of a window or even as bedside cabinets.
