About this item

This charming pair of storage trunks come from Gansu, western China and date from the early 20th century.

They are made from pine and have the original red lacquer finish that has been sealed more recently with a clear varnish. The fronts display beautiful paintings in creams and green, depicting various flowers, including peonies that were seen as a symbol of status.

The interiors are finished in a dark brown lacquer and the old hardware remains. The wooden stands are newly made and are optional as the trunks simply lift on and off.

Use today as beautiful bedside tables and useful storage or as side table in a living room.

Sold as a pair, the price shown is for both trunks.
