Product description

Gansu, circa 1880
This delightful trunk is in its original black lacquer,with paintings that depict a scene from a Chinese opera - two figures at a table dressed in bright robes. This mainscene is flanked to the sides and below with furtherpaintings of flowers. The trunk is of a type used by opera troupes as they toured the countryside promoting their production. The painting on the front was effectively an advert for whatever opera they were performing.
