About this item

Originating from Shanxi, northern China, circa 1820, this delightful low carved coffer was once used on a 'kang' platform to heat and serve food in a Chinese home.

It's original lacquer in red and black has significantly worn over the last 200 years, especially on the top surface, leaving a very interesting patina.

Simple carved relief can be seen on the three drawers and the two fixed panels. To add even more character and charm the apron and spandrels are also neatly carved.

Today this would make a lovely coffee table with it's useful drawers to store your favourite book or magazines.
