About this item

Originating from Mongolia in the 1850s, this wonderful, large and unique Antique Mongolian Painted Trunk offers a huge amount of storage. Original Mongolian furniture like this is becoming more and more rare so it is very unusual to find a piece in such fine condition - particularly a chest in such large proportions.

It has its original, rich red lacquer finish with lovely paintings on the front panel, depicting flowers, birds and butterflies in orange and greens with each panel having an inscription - messages of good luck for the owner of the trunk. The once vibrant colours have now softened but the paintings remain beautifully clear.

The front apron at the bottom of the trunk is nicely carved, while the jagged moulded frame in green and orange around the front of the trunk gives the piece even more charm and character. It has a large domed lid which is hinged at the back on wooden dowels and supported with shaped brass braces.

This is a very imposing and unique chest that offers a vast amount of storage and would be the focus of any room in a modern home.
