Japanese Modern China Cabinet / Tea Cabinet - $250

Vintage Japanese Tea Cabinet - $250 (Alexandria, VA)

This listing is for a unique Japanese modern tea cabinet, which the seller states was brought over from Japan.  This is not your usual mid-century modern piece, and the picture is not fantastic, but this looks like a very interesting, uniquely designed, and generally cool piece of furniture.  The open shelving area (which can have glass doors, according to the seller) appears to have a linen/grasscloth backing, and the wood shelves have an interesting z-shape.

I can't tell what type of wood the cabinet is made out of, or whether it is veneer or solid wood, but everything looks intact and structurally sound at a glance. At $250 (asking price) I think this is a good deal. Offer cash and you can probably take it home for $150 or $200. If you like this piece, don't wait; you are not likely to see another one like it any time soon.
