Chocolate Chinoiserie Bar and Display Cabinet


An exclusive chocolate Chinoiserie bar and display cabinet.

The term "Chinoiserie" originates from the French word "chinois," meaning Chinese. Referring to a style that emerged in the 18th century, characterized by the elements of Chinese, Japanese, and other Asian cultures.

During the 18th century in Britain, China held an aura of mystery as it was perceived as a distant and enigmatic land. Despite increasing trade relations between Britain and China, access to China remained limited, and firsthand experiences of the country were rare. Chinoiserie, therefore, capitalized on these exotic and mysterious perceptions of China.

This imbuya chocolate Chinoiserie peice features a break bowfront brass gallery top. Inside, a delicately Chinoiserie hand-painted interior showcases two galleried shelves with pierced cabinet doors enclosing lights. The cabinet stands on square chamfered legs with spandrels and is inspired by an original George III piece.
