About this item

Once used by a Chinese merchant, this lovely old chest would have been used to carry his belongings as he travelled the towns and villages.

It is made from thick elm wood and has its original black lacquer finish that has worn from multiple use over the years, thus adding a delightful charm.

The brass clasp, hinges and metal ware are original as are the metal eye shaped plates found towards the bottom left and right of the chest, these were designed to take ropes or rods so that the chest could be transported more easily when the merchant was travelling.

Use today for storage and ideal as a small side table adding real character to a living room or bedroom.
