This is a beautiful blonde colored lacquer finish Asian style liquor cabinet. It has bas-relief oriental scenes and characters, hand painted and mother of pearl. The top opens for drink preparation, and there are several compartments for bottles, stemmed glasses, and other items. (See photos) I have found several similar pieces, but they are all black lacquer instead of the blonde, are all from the early 1960's and are priced between $1500 and $2500.
I am the second owner, obtaining it as part of a house purchase in 1980. The seller owned a high end Oriental collectibles shop, but was retiring to an apartment. So all her best furniture came with the house. She said it was made in the 1940's.
