About this item

This delightful, long, narrow black lacquered blanket trunk originates from Qinghai province in western China, circa 1860 and was most likely to have been given as part of a wedding dowry, containing additional items.

In its original state, however now with a distressed and worn look that gives it so much character.

The original paintings are still also visible, depicting various flowers and butterflies being symbols for 'marital happiness', however the hardware has been more recently replaced..

A fabulous storage solution for bed linen, clothes or towels in a bedroom or display as a lovely accent piece in a living room and store away!
