1 in stock


This old Chinese wedding cabinet was original from Manchuria China and was called ‘Kang Piano’ placed on the top of ‘Kang’ – a huge warm bed in northern China. Kang Piano was used to be a piece of extremely popular furniture in Manchuria for over two thousand years. This style of furniture has stopped making since the mid of the last century with the developments of modern conditions and society.

In ancient times, Kang Pianos were mainly made of solid wood with a few carved tricks, the overall appearance of the wood is the original primitive pattern. About 300 years ago, drawings were introduced into the making of furniture. Artists are mostly folk artists, with watercolour painting in Chinese style, the painting patterns are landscape, flowers and folklore legend fragments.

During the restoration, the restorer has kept this Kong Piano in the original status possible. The top of the Cabinet is still in the brown colour finish, the body was kept originally painted with red tung oil, and the front of the cabinet was outlined in gold lines and drawings. The piece has been made for over 100 years, and it remains in its original state well with beautifully worn marks. 

Each piece of these type of Kang Pianos is unique, no one is the same as another.
