This elegant trunk belonged to a Southern Chinese scholar who used it to store his collection of paintings and rubbings. The trunk itself is substantial, yet finely made with rows of exquisite dovetails and traditional joinery method employing tenons and mortises. The base is wonderful for it not only enhances the trunk's height and stability but also as an aesthetic feature that makes the trunk more formal. Hence the overall appeal is sophisticated. Bronze hardware are simple and beautiful.
Fantastic as a coffee table or at foot of the bed.
