A beautiful antique red crackle cabinet from Shan Xi Province. The style is very unique yet distinctive of the Northern Chinese region. Such a vernacular design is reflected in the following areas:  thicker frame works are used in structure, heavier woods are used in construction, scales are larger, more substantial presence, and the lack of fine carvings and frivolous decorations. The use of a mottled red is also favored in the north for a more subdued, matured look. The antique furniture of the ancient Shan Xi province is known for its grand substance and timeless design, which this wonderful piece exemplifies.
