This is a family heirloom from my grand parents who lived in Indochina from 1910 to 1956.
this cabinet-altar is very finely engraved and open carved both faces, 1.3 meters high, 1.5 meters wide. Medallions are bone, not ivory with dragons, characters and trigrams I can't read.
Top has a nearly iridescent feel with nice veining.
There was a pair, but the other was destroyed during the moving trip to settle in France :-(
Any help to decipher writing welcome!!!
