About this item

This beautiful trunk in its original black lacquer is typical of a type used by opera troupes in the late 1800's - used to store their garments and pocessions whilst promoting their productions.

Originating from Gansu, a province in north-central China, it has hand paintings depicting a scene from a Chinese opera - of two figures at a table dressed in bright coloured robes with further paintings of flowers around the edges.

Use in a modern home for storage and double up as a coffee table.
