Black Lacquer Painted Chest
Shanxi, circa 1860
This exquisitely painted chest would be ideal for blankets, clothing or as a childs toy box. The paintings show floral designs in creams, reds and greens which really stand out against the black lacquer. The chest is from Shanxi in central China, and is of a type used by Chinese opera troupes to hold their props and costumes as they toured the countryside.
