A superb original example of 19th Century bamboo cupboard or bookcase, amazingly it retains its original embossed paper inside and out, the piece has a great look with the wear giving it an extra special appearance, the bamboo has a lovely tone to it and contrasts beautifully with the dark/midnight blue colour of the paper. Contains two internal shelves finished with bamboo edging. The front splayed leg s give it a well proportioned stance.

The top retains it original paper mache painted and lacquered top, some losses to the top as photographed, another little treat is that you can see some original Japanese writing visible from the old newspapers that were used in the paper mache.

A well made quality piece with great look for any interior design project. Works well as a small bookcase, hall/lamp table or even in a bathroom.
Each shelf measures 20cm / 8″ high.
