About this item

This charming black chest is decorated in paintings that depict characters and scenes from Chinese legend in creams, reds and blues.

It was made during the mid 19th century in the ancient city of Pingyao, central Shanxi, an area famous for its painted decoration.

The old lacquer has worn and crackled over time and the elegant little brass clasp on the front is also original making this a delightful little storage chest.
