This old Chinese wedding cabinet was original from Manchuria China and was called ‘Kang Piano’ placed on the top of ‘Kang’ – a hugh warm bed in the northern China. Kang Piano was used to be a piece of extremely popular furniture in Manchuria for over two thousands years. These style of furniture has stopped making since the mid of last century with the developments of modern condition and society.
In the ancient times, Kang Piano 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, the drawings were introduced into the making of the furniture. Artists are mostly folk artists, with water color painted in Chinese painting style, the painting patterns are landscape, flowers and folklore legend fragments.
The paintings on this piece are very meaningful: the red and purple flowers are very festive and fruitful which represents the celebration of the new establishment of China under the Communist regime. The words on the bottom of the front say: ‘Serve the People’.
The restoration has removed the old hardwares from the top lids to the body but kept these two lids on the top openable. The practicality is very strong.
