Made in the 1860s in the Qinghai Province of China, trunks like these were often used for storing bed linens and even clothes.

This particular piece was originally painted in a beautiful red lacquer but over time it has softened, giving it a rich, dark red finish with character instead.

Crafted from pine wood, the style as well as decoration used was popular in the era. This one is made with a wooden and brass hinges with lock plate at the front.

You can use this as a small coffee table, storage piece or even as mere decor inside your home. It's lovely and definitely carries a deep character with it.
