Dazzling flaming Cintamani and ashoka blossoms dominate the doors, whileTsebum, Mahamudra and Lotus blossoms are featured on the main panels.  The shading is nicely done, the art work is clean and the kyungbur is flawless.  The only metal hardware on this piece are the round loops with silk road transit tax coins as the escutcheon for the drawer pulls on the drawer fronts.  The hinges of the doors are wood-pegs in the doors that fit into a hole in the underside of the top and slide into a groove on the horizontal frame. The door-pull is the vertical kyungbur-trim in the center of the two doors. The front trim is done in the zig-zag kyungbur (raised gesso), however instead of the usual red and gold there is a dark maroon and gold. The sides, back and top are a natural wood with an oil finish. The wood is predominately Asian Cedar and some pine, with mahogany thrown in the mix as the drawer fronts. Comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.  It was originally made to be sold to a lama and was forgotten about during the turbulent years of the occupation's re-education and Cultural Revolution.
