A tremendous Pair of Antique Chinese Doors dating to 1900 in solid elm with the original black lacquer finish from the Henan Province.
Elm is one of the most commonly used woods in China due to its resistance to decay, attractive grains, and the ease with which it can be carved and used for a variety of purposes. Typically, Chinese elm blends a yellowish brown sapwood with a much bolder heartwood, so the pieces tend to contain a great deal of contrast, but elm from southern regions can be darker in color and are a bit harder. There are several sub-categories of elm found throughout China, but they are all easy to work with and were used by both wealthy people and middle class people.
Chinese homes were open to the elements to a much greater degree than homes in the Western world, and often did not have wooden floors. For this reason, it is highly likely that any antique Chinese piece of furniture on the market today has been restored. This particular item has been professionally restored, which may mean that some areas have been rebuilt or replaced, some hardware may not be original, and the piece has been refinished on either the interior, the exterior, or both.
Shows significant wear to the original black lacquer finish and miscellaneous nicks, dings, and scratches due to age and use.
