Hand Painted Katmandu Cabinet

Some of the most interesting pieces that we recently got in at the store...hand painted and wonderful...Katmandu, the capital city of Nepal, is home to many skilled artisans. This piece is hand crafted and hand painted by these artist. The colors on this cabinet are original. Due to their bleak surroundings the people of Katmandu prefer radiant colors which are highlighted in these select pieces we receive in....
This cabinet would be perfect in a kitchen space stacked with your favorite dishes and serving pieces, in a living area as a great bookcase with the doors open, even wonderful in an entry to hold a collection. With ample shelf space and muted aqua colors this is a wonderful and unique piece!
The soft muted colors of these old rustic doors are very appealing...a very neat piece.
