A hidden story lies just under the surface of this remarkable armoire. At first glance, one notices the perfect symmetry of the large cabinet. But take a moment to look deeper, you will discover it subtly reveals the original intricate painting on the front of a town and city, with buildings and figures. The richness of the utterly stunning original red lacquered paint is deepened with the natural wear down to the original wood, enriching the depth of its beauty.  Behind the two hinged doors, the interior is finished in a black lacquer with 2 shelves. The four small drawers below work well and add balance under the large doors of this impressive armoire.
