Asian Antique Inlaid Mother of Pearl Black Lacquer China Cabinet 1940's Korean Furniture at The Crabby Nook Gift Shop

  • Very ornate design.  This beautiful cabinet is a very old piece and was made in a time where mother of pearl was a painstaking craftsman art form. It is very hard to find this type of art in today's market.
  • Comes in two sections.

      • Four Drawers with a Floral mother of Pearl Design that measure 10.5" Width x 4.25" Height x 12.25" Deep each two on each side.  Each drawer has three sides and the bottom in unfinished wood and does not include the lacquer finish on those sides; and,
      • Two rectangle sliding glass doors encased in the black lacquer wood and Mother of pearl design frame that measure 22" Length x 10.5" Height each that open into a 44" Length x 13" Deep cabinet in the center of the four drawers.
    • Bottom section is a credenza cabinet.  The top only has the lacquer finished approximately six inches from the front.  The top section fits onto the top of the credenza and covers the unfinished wood portion.  The back shows unfinished wood and does not have the lacquer finish.  The credenza includes:
      • Four Cabinet doors with large Mother of Pearl Designs that measure 16" Width x 18.5" Height each.   Both end cabinets open into a 18" Deep cabinet.  The two center doors open into a 32" Length cabinet with a removable shelf that does not have the lacquer finish on the bottom and three sides.
  • It is recommended that you have a working humidifier in any room you display this cabinet to keep the wood from drying out.  We also recommend that you use a furniture oil a couple times a year to keep moisture in the unfinished wood portions.  
MEASUREMENTS:  Overall measurements are 75'' Height x 72" Length.  Bottom credenza measures 24" Height x 18" Deep.  Top section measures 51" Height x 14.5" Deep.  

SHIPPING:  This is a local pickup listing.  However, we suggest that you contact Craters & Freighters of Kansas City Toll Free:  (800) 833-4219 to have this cabinet shipped to your location if you are unable to pick this up.  They are an expert company in shipping antique furniture.  I am guessing that shipping weight will be close to 250 pounds.  PLEASE NOTE:  This cabinet will NOT fit into a mini van.  We tried.  It will not fit into a mini van.

Bread Basket with Lotus Warming Tile at The Crabby Nook

Bread Basket with Lotus Warming Tile

bread basketWe got a lot of inquiries about our new bread basket that we teased you with in our last newsletter.  Many of you did not know that we design a lot of our products.  We have taken on a new company direction this year.  We are having more products made for us in the Lotus Flower design.  The Lotus has always been a very powerful symbol to us.  The Lotus represents Purity, Compassion and Love.  We have adopted the Lotus flower symbol for our company.  

In October, 2012, we asked a manufacturing company if they could make us a bread basket with a warming tile.  We submitted our design and this is the end product!  The basket is handwoven out of Kaisa grass with a Palm wrap.  The warming tile is made from terracotta with a hand carved lotus design.  We hope you LOVE it as much as we do!  We are so excited.  We just received a notice that our baskets will arrive in Kansas City on July 16th.  

Look for other products we have in the making with our Lotus Floral design!  Coming Soon!  We hope to have more in time for the Holidays! 

You can pre-order this basket today and have one reserved for you!  Be sure to use your Coupon Code RETURN10 to get 10% OFF your order!

Celebrate the 4th of July!

It is time to celebrate our GREAT Nation this Independence Day as we remember our ancestors and forefathers who fought for our freedoms to make us a FREE Country. Here at The Crabby Nook we are very thankful that our small business is allowed to travel throughout the world and bring it home, closer to you. Have a SAFE and HAPPY 4th of July!

Did you know ---
  • The U.S. Congress did not make the 4th of July a federal holiday until 1870 after both the U.S. Civil War and the War of 1812;
  • Some American Colonists celebrated the birth of independence by staging mock funerals for King George III accompanied by bells, processions and bonfires; and,
  • Due to the time restraints of the Revolutionary War, Congress did not fully address slave trade in the writing of the U.S. Constitution. This mistake would cause a future American War, the U.S. Civil War.
