This simple small trunk is a charming decorative piece that could have many uses.
Each side is a flat board with a small cut out section on the center of the bottom. The sides are connected to each other with a series of dovetailed joints. The lid also has 4 sides using the same dovetailed joints. The top of the lid is a single board with a nice molded edge detail on all sides.
The front hardware on this antique Chinese Small Rustic trunk has a circle backplate with a drop latch that goes over some loops that receives a keeper pin to secure the lid in place.
Each end had an unusual style drop pull with 2 square back-plates, each having some embossed designs.
The hardware appears to be original to the trunk, with the exception of the keeper pin.
The trunk is finished in a flat red lacquer that also looks original to the piece.
Due to the wide single boards, there are some age / shrinkage cracks as can be seen in the photos.
