Chinese Elm Money Trunk
Beijing, circa 1900
This solid looking cabinet is typical of chests that were used to store money and valuables - commonly known as money trunks. The main interior is accessed through two small doors at the front, with a removable wooden post between them. Two removable half board lids at the top provide access to the upper section, and would originally have been locked to protect the contents. The cabinet is in solid elm and the original dark lacquer finish has been stripped away to a more natural look.
