About this item

This delightful chest is from Shanxi, central China, circa 1860 and is of a type used by Chinese opera troupes to hold their props and costumes as they toured the countryside.

It is exquisitely painted with floral designs in creams, reds and greens which still stand out against the black lacquer.

The chest has a simple clasp to close the hinged lid, making this ideal for storing blankets, clothing or children's toys.
