Second Painted Buffet

The simple line drawing or painting on the doors of this buffet are original.  The buffet's color is original with a clear overcoat.  The doors have been modified, and some of the original hardware has been left on the face of the buffet.  This poplar buffet probably originated in Shanxi province during the early part of the 20th century. Chinese poplar does not have the "greenish" hue that American poplar can have, and it is a good deal less heavy than if it were made from elm.  It has the usual repairs and restorations, but that original painting is simply wonderful!
