Found in the Shanxi province of China and dates around the 1860s, this stunning Antique Carved Coffer adds drama to any part of your home.

It comes with a very distinctive look along with plenty of space for storage. In fact, there are five drawers to be found on the piece, all of which feature intricate carvings that are wonderful to look at and even touch. There are also two beautiful spandrels flanking the piece on each side.

If you look closely at the carvings, you'll find a beautiful set of tortoises on the lower panel. These actually represent wealth and longevity. Although the paint has worn out, these were originally painted in a vibrant red.

Coffers such as these were quite popular back in the day. They would often have a hidden space behind certain panels which were accessible by removing the drawer completely. We've adapted our version to include three small drawers using the original painted fixed panels.

You'll definitely love the look of this piece. Whether you use it as decor or as an actual storage piece, it's a rare beauty worth indulging in.
