Antique Chinese display cabinet circa 1900. Excellent original condition. Measures 70.5 inches tall, 28 inches deep and 36 inches wide. Black exterior with simple gold line highlights, brilliant red interior. There is a single fixed shelf set 27.5 inches from the bottom leaving a 29 inches top distance. Two lights were added later.

Each one is exquisitely painted in a slightly different motif from the others.
