It is probable that this true pair of cabinets are unique as we have been unable to find any other recorded examples.
Huanghuali (Dalbergia Odorifera) is indigenous to Hainan Island in the South China Sea, but large trees are no longer accessible. It ranges from light yellow to purplish red in colour and was the principal cabinet wood for fine furniture in the Ming and early Qing dynasties, at which time supplies became almost exhausted.
