About this item

This wonderful old coffer comes from Shanxi, northern China, circa 1840 and would have been produced to store money and valuables. Handmade from elm wood and still boasting its original finish, however it would have been a much deeper and darker colour that has now worn over the years to form a more mellow shade of grey.

Three useful drawers at the bottom have been added more recently and adapted from what was once a fixed panel with the space behind once forming a 'secret' compartment, accessible only be removing the upper drawers.

The upper drawers are decorated with circular carved floral patterns, dressed with simple ring hardware and locking iron handles stretch across the central frame.

A delightful addition to a hallway, reception room or living area.
