Drexel 'Et Cetera' Chinoiserie Cabinet

Maximalist Chinoiserie!  This stunning cabinet was designed as part of the Drexel 'Et Cetera' collection.  We've had other pieces from the collection and lots of other Chinoiserie pieces over the years.  They're almost always lacquered in black, occasionally red or green.  This is the first in ivory, and may have been a custom order.  The cabinet feels really fresh with the lighter coloring.  The handpainted decoration is also lighter and more modern feeling.  The top of the two-piece cabinet has a wider center section flanked by two narrower sections.  There are nine adjustable glass shelves and four pot lights.  The base of the cabinet has three compartments, each with a stationary shelf.  80" h., 55" w., 14.5" d.  American, c. 1970's  SOLD
Condition:  Very good vintage condition with age appropriate wear.
