Chinese Black Collection

Hand finished in striking black lacquer to appeal to more modern interiors and modelled on designs from 9th, 12th and 18th Century China.

The ancient Chinese lacquer art dating back thousands of years uses a resin from a ‘varnish’ tree indigenous to China. We use Shellac, a natural resin secreted by the female lac bug on trees in the forests of India and Thailand. Shellac is harder and less easily scratched.
