About this item

The lovely large trunk is from Qinghai in western China, circa 1880, where it would have been used for storing clothes and fabrics.

It remains in its original condition, though it is now worn in parts to reveal the wood beneath, particularly around the base.

The upper front is split into two panels, each framed in black lacquer with simple paintings of flowers at each corner. The panels are in red, each beautifully decorated with delicate paintings of flower vases and other artefacts that donated the high rank and status of the owner. Below these two main paintings are three smaller panels decorated with flowers, and a carved base.

Use today as a blanket chest in a bedroom or as a delightful side table with storage beneath in a living room.
