About this item

A delightful example of trunks used by the Chinese opera to transport their costumes and possessions throughout their tours of the Shanxi province.

Dating to 1860 and still in its original black finish with handcrafted paintings of phoenix and peony flowers, within a delicately finished gold coloured frame. In addition to add character and intrigue - either side of the frame are figures of male and female operatic firgures in traditional costume.

Two small painted drawers with simple handles, add to the beauty of this unusul trunk.

Use today for general storage of bedding or clothes or it would make a wonderful coffee table and talking point in a living room.
