Floral Red Painted Chinese Chest
Gansu, circa 1900
This beautiful red lacquer storage chest is completely original except for the simple brass clasp, which has replaced the old one. The paintings depict flowers and leaves in various shades of now faded greens and golds that subtly contrast with the red surface. With useful storage space inside, the chest is a nice height to double as a side table in a living room or next to a bed.
