moreA dragon adorns the top of this hand hewn, hand made, hand-painted chest which will become the focal point of any room. Storage piece and work of art , this sideboard was made with hand tools in Tibet, sawed, planed, sanded without electric tools. Made as a family's main household storage, it is unlike any reproduction piece you might find in the US– or any piece made intentionally for export.
The wood is hand-hewn (from either TIbetan fir, I believe) and assembled without any metal hardware or glue, using mortise-and-tenon and pegs for the joints. The design is hand-painted and has been touched up throughout the years. The original pigment dye for the dragon's blue hands and blue face on the top of the chest are still visible, as well as in a few other places. A dragon adorns the top of the piece, with floral patterns and geometric background on the front and legs. The back is not painted.
This piece of folk art deserves a lovely home where it is admired and cared for. It is an antique, and has the expected wear. (Please see pictures.)
Please note: modern knobs were added to the front doors for ease of opening. They could be easily switched out for more authentic hardware. less
