A PAIR OF HUANGHUALI LOW SQUARE CORNER DISPLAY CABINETS, LIANGGEGUI
Each cabinet has attractively figured panels set within narrow frames, and doors fitted flush which open to reveal the shelved interior with two drawers. The upper display shelf is enclosed by an openwork gallery carved with lotus meander and stylized lingzhi stems in the topmost corner. The stiles project below the doors to form the legs and are joined by a shaped apron carved in relief with a pair of dragons confronted on a flaming pearl amidst clouds.
