This cabinet inherited the elegance and beauty of the classical A-form cabinet of the Ming Dynasty. The cabinet consists of two sections. The top is a round-cornered tapered cabinet with a protruding top frame. There is a central stile between the two door panels. Each door is hinged to the body frame with a pivotal dowel and can be easily detachable. The legs of the cabinet are further strengthened with a humpback stretchers and struts. The cabinet rests on top of a stand with horsehoof style legs. The stand has two drawers. Most of the cabinets which were made for storage of books and paintings are normally elevated with a stand so that the effects of moisture from the floor hitting directly the legs of the cabinet will be minimized.
