About this item

This lovely antique, pine blanket trunk dates back to circa 1860 and comes from Gansu in western China.

This beautiful trunk will have been used to store bedding, clothing or other pocessions in a Chinese home.

Its front panel has paintings depicting vases of flowers, fruits and vegetables which are on a dark cream background, along with a long inscription. The lid has painted pink peonies symbolising high rank and status, believed to have possibly been added at a slighty later date.

Use as originally intended as a great storage solution and also double up by using it as a handy side table.
