Antique Chinese Small Carved Front Trunk, 18″ Wide
NOTE: we originally had 2 of these trunks for you to choose from so some photos show a different design on the front carvings. We only have one left and it is the one in the image to the left.
This beautiful small trunk is a charming decorative piece that could have many uses.
The four sides appear to be single boards that are connected with dovetail joints.
The front side had nicely detailed hand relief carved designs. The center is a large flower, most likely a Chrysanthemum. In each bottom corner there are carvings of moths (left trunk) or storks (right trunk). Above the flower there is a single carved moth. The front section of the lid has Chinese characters, with a carved circular design in the center.
The front hardware has a round back-plate on the front of the lid with a drop latch and the bottom of the latch goes over a loop that also has a round back-plate.
The lid of the trunk has an unusual shape. The front and back have a flat vertical section and then angles upward to a flat top.
The trunk is finished in a dark lacquer with some lighter colored painted accents on the relief carvings.
