Five Drawer Elm Storage Chest
Shanxi, China, circa 1840
This stunning coffer would once have had a black lacquer finish, but the years of wear have muted it to a more dark grey. The bottom drawers are a recent addition for practicality and would once have been fixed panels. The two upper drawers are decorated with a simple carved Chrysanthemum flower where the handles are fitted, and can be secured by locking the iron handles onto a ring on the central frame.
