An elaborate art deco style cabinet from Laos. Reflecting French or British colonial taste, this cabinet was originally used as a wardrobe and consists of narrow center doors opening to a wider interior, beading details on the frame and doors, an inlaid rectangular decorative design above and a fan carved in relief below. Made of beautifully grained golden teak wood prevalent in Indochina during the 1800s to early 1900s and highly desired by the colonials or local wealthy.
