About this item

A lovely old trunk that would have been used to store costumes and other items by a Chinese opera troupe as they toured the countryside around Shanxi province.

It dates to around 1880 and is in its original lacquered finish, which has worn in parts, mainly on the edges and corners. A simple metal clasp remains to close the hinged lid.

The old paintings of flowers and a simple landscape on the front are in soft colours adding charm and character to this delightful chest.

Use today in a living room that doubles up as a low side table or store bed linen and clothes in a bedroom.
