This is a great example of Chinese antique furniture decorated with light relief carvings. All images were carved using a very light method creating a shallow, slightly raised effects. Comparing to traditional deep-set carvings, such approach gives a refreshing, gentle and youthful appeal.

This piece employed such technique to create a primitive design incorporating birds and cranes. They symbolize happiness and good health.

Two drawers offer additional storage. Solid wood. Tenons and mortises.
