Blanket Chest in Camphor Wood
Beijing, China, circa 1900
This wonderful large camphor wood trunk has a mid brown finish. Camphor was a favoured material for this type of chest due to its fragrance acting as a natural repellent to moths and other insects. The heavy, circular brass plate on the front is a replacement for the original. The inside is in the paler, natural colour of the camphor wood.
