About this item

This lovely, large camphor chest is typical of the heavy duty storage trunks used around China to store clothing and silks, either in the home or when travelling.

Some were made from elm but camphor was a favourite material for this type of item as its natural fragrance acts as a natural repellent to moths and other insects.

This particular trunk is from Beijing and boats its original mid-brown finish and was made around 1900. It has a chunky, circular brass plate on the front that is a replacement, but still in keeping with the original. The inside is in the paler, natural colour of the camphor wood.

Great for storage in a bedroom and the trunk is also a nice size and height to be used as a coffee table in a living room.
