This is a stunning vintage Chinese Export Rosewood Lacquered Mother of Pearl Inlay Dresser or Chest. The mother of pearl inlay depicting Ming Tree and Birds is on 3 sides. I wish we could pick up the iridescence on the Mother of Pearl better with our photos, hopefully you can see the detail and beauty of this exceptional piece. This piece is crafted in solid rosewood and has a glossy thick clear lacquer finish.
This is lovely enough to use as a server in a dining room or a show piece in your living room. You can see the grain of the rosewood best in our photos of the side view. This dresser or chest stands 42 3/4" tall, 36" long and 17 3/4" deep. The 6 top drawers have an inside depth of 5 1/4" and the 2 lower drawers have a depth of 6 1/4". There are 4 carved claw feet with some type of animal head carved above the claw (see photo for close up). The drawer handles are recessed hand carved florals.
The condition is Very Good. We note a few small pieces of inlay missing. Only one piece is easy to find and it would be a quick repair should you choose to have it done. Personally, it is an incredible piece in original condition and I would leave it as I found it, but it is your preference. We note a small edge scratch less than 1/4 on the top left upper side of piece (see last photo left picture). We show it greatly enlarged for you to see. As you can see by the photo of the entire top, it is nearly impossible to find unless you know where it is. A tiny bit of stain will completely cover.
