Red Lacquer Painted Blanket Box
Gansu, circa 1900
In its original red lacquer finish and still with the old paintings of flowers visible on the front in blues and creams, this lovely old blanket chest is a nice height to double as a side table next to a bed or sofa, with useful storage space inside. Made from pine, it has a chunky base that incorporates a simple carved design at the bottom, and the brass hardware is a replacement for the original. The top surface is in the dark stained pine, resealed with a shiny varnish to bring out the wood's lovely character and patina.
