This beautiful antique Thailanders altar cabinet dates to the middle of the 19th century. The top frames the cabinet with a repeating 'key fret' design which is characteristic of Eastern Thai furniture where there was a stronger Chinese cultural influence. The style of the floral design also has clear Chinese influences - unsurprising as Chinese emperors sponsored Tibetan religion since the Yuan dynasty (1271–1368 AD). The flowers seen in each of the yellow panels are lotus flowers, an auspicious symbol of purity and enlightenment from mundane existence.
These cabinets were often used in temples or as family altars & were used to store religious scrolls, silk ceremonial clothes, family jewelry and yak butter used in lamps. Often people would gift painted furniture to temples as offerings.
This style excellent of Thai cabinet is mostly seen in the late 18th and early 19th century when the cabinet first became more prominent in Thailand.
