Pair of Painted Antique Trunks
Gansu, circa 1900
This gorgeous pair of antique trunks are painted with scenes of everyday life, including various figures in traditional dress from the last century. The paintings are now more muted than they once were but still clear, in a monochrome that is easily picked out against the red lacquer background. The brass clasp on one of the trunks has been replaced but on the other is original. Sold as a pair, the price shown is for both trunks.
