Painted Black Blanket Chest on Stand
Gansu, circa 1900
This old blanket box would have been used for storing clothes and other possessions, either in the home or when travelling. The simple brass clasp on the front and the stand, with its horse hoof style feet, are new but the black finish and paintings on the trunk are original, enhanced with a new layer of varnish. The paintings show various flowers in soft creams, reds and greens that contrast nicely against the black background. Useful as a side table or small coffee table, with handy storage space inside.
