A 19th century hand painted chest from Inner Mongolia, with a thick solid wood single board in tenon and mortise construction above 2 full sized drawers and a beautiful, elaborately painted apron. The depictions show a pair of dragons chasing a pearl above sea waves beneath two phoenixes in clouds, set in a frame of eternity scrolls, a typical auspicious scene symbolizing harmony and good fortune. Black and red backgrounds contrast saffron colored brush paintings. Beautiful color and patina.
