About this item

This delightful pair of blanket chests are in their original red lacquer finish, still with the old paintings in black and gold and come from Qinghai province in western China.

Over time the gold decoration has largely worn away to show the black base below, but the details can still be made out. On one trunk they show a scholar or teacher with his young students, giving a clue to the occupation of the original owner. The paintings on the second trunk are less clear but appear to show a female, seated figure with children at either side.

Use today as attractive side tables either side of a sofa or ideal as bedside tables with useful storage space inside.

Sold as a pair and the price shown is for the two trunks.
