Japanese carved cabinet with shelves (shodana), Meiji period (1868-1912), with Shibayama inlaid panels, approx 81"h, 54"w, 14"d Start Price: $5,000.00


01.16.24: In my opinion regarding LOT 1465: I note that the cabinet is intact and structurally sturdy, the framing of the uppermost panel on the left hand side exhibits seam separation at the corners which have paint touch ups, and the panel door pull has visible adhesive, multiple panels exhibit inpainting throughout the background, and I observe some sparse, minor chips/ losses to inlay, the drawers and sliding panels operate smoothly, and the lowermost panel on the right hand side displays seam separation from the outer framing with visible glue reinforcement, and the door appears slightly ill-fitted and I cannot readjust it into proper placement due to a nail head blocking the door from opening towards me, the same panel is lacking a door pull, additionally there are some minor chips to carved elements
