Made during the 1900s, this beautifully faded Mongolian Trunk can easily add drama and character to your living space. Whether it's placed inside your bedroom or living room, it's bound to add some personality to your space.

The majority of the trunk is in its original condition with very few restoration done. In fact, the only things that are 'new' are the modern hinges found at the back of the trunk to supplement the original ring hinges.

All of the hardware as well as the paintings (although faded) are original and date back from hundreds of years ago. The paintings in the front are hardly visible anymore but if you take a look at the sides, you can still see the tigers decorating the piece. They were painted to guard the contents of the trunk from intruders and evil spirits.
