Chinese Huanghuali furniture is extremely rare and highly coveted, and refers to all furniture made from the yellowish-red wood of the Huanghuali tree. Huanghuali is a type of rosewood originally referred to as “huali." “Huang," meaning “yellow," refers to the yellowish tone that is adopted by the wood after prolonged exposure to sunlight. Huanghuali wood furniture is not only distinctive by the beautiful color, but also by the sweet aroma when cut. Due to its popularity, however, the slow-growing Huanghuali tree now hangs on the brink of extinction and all new creation of furniture and decorative arts from its wood is now forbidden. 

Vintage Condition: Exceptional with great detailing and finish. The piece retains the original craft/workmanship, with no discoloration, chipping/cracking, surface wear, or structural damage noted.
