    I walked out of the auction, the proud new owner of this gorgeous china cabinet. It must have created a lot of guilt, because, even though I had an extensive list of glass items I wanted to bid on, I didn't get any of them.
    I'm in the process of cleaning from top to bottom. Can't wait to start loading it up.
    The 4 doors at the bottom are carved in opposing dragon scenes.
    The 4 drawers above them are also carved in dragon motif. Under the dragon bodies are cut outs that serve as the drawer pulls.
    Above them are 4 glass doors for the display area.
    At the top, there is a decorative carving of 2 dragons in opposing stances.
    I think I'm in love.
    Thanks for stopping by.

      Thank you Racer, you'll be one of the first people to see it loaded up! Hope I don't need to go out and buy more "quality glass products", lol.

      Thanks Runner. It's 72" wide with 4 working doors, which should make it safer moving delicate glass in and out of the case.

      Interestingly, as I got into the lighting system that was already in place, I found that the light bulbs were odd sized. The bases were 14mm instead of the common 12mm candelabra bulb commonly found everywhere. Turns out the Hutch came from Europe, where the 14mm base is their standard. I was able to retain the fixtures, replace the sockets with candelabra sockets, then I was able to install 40 watt LED bulbs that only use 5 watts, and don't heat the interior at all. The bulbs should pay for themselves in a year.
