Painted Black Lacquer Trunk
Shanxi, circa 1890
The black lacquer finish of this lovely painted trunk has worn in parts, showing the natural wood beneath, the once vivid floral paintings on the front have now aged and faded to subtle oranges and creams, giving a soft, weathered full of character. Made from 'wutong' wood - also referred to as 'phoenix tree wood' as the trees were thought to be favoured by the phoenix for resting. Great for any storage, the trunk is also a good size to be used as a side table next to a bed or sofa.
