Both a design gallery and the home to one of Chicago’s most passionate furniture collectors, The Gilded Terrace beckons visitors to explore their passion for decor, while demonstrating that any lovely item can be used in a ‘livable’ way. The setting is an eclectically decorated apartment within a 1920’s pre-war high-rise. The collection - some of which is available on Apartment Therapy - is a mixed display of Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, Chinoiserie & Oriental-chic, among various other period styles.
Offered here is a Chinoiserie style china cabinet, handcrafted by Drexel Heritage as part of their Et Cetera collection. This piece features a 3 door glass top portion, which is lighted. The bottom portion of the cabinet features 4 doors which are hand-painted with Oriental and Asian decorative motifs.
Many of these Drexel pieces were done in a black, japanned finish, however, this is one of the rarest examples as it is finished in Walnut. The cabinet is also in near mint condition.
The cabinet measures 80" high, 56" wide, and 14" deep.
