A SPLENDID PAIR OF YANGZHOU STYLE LACQUER COMPOUND CABINETS.
Provenance: Purchased by Henry Wehrhane in Bejing in 1923, hence by descent. The seller Xu Shoushao declared that the cabinets had been made for emperor Chongzhen and been given to his grandfather Xu Tong (1819-1900) in the third year of Guangxu. He was then an advisor to the emperor. This statement survived in the form of an English translation done by J.C. Fitzhugh at the time (only as a copy).
