Late 19th Century Chinese Camphorwood Chest

Antique camphorwood chest, hand-crafted in China at the end of the 19th Century. We love the simplicity of the design, which was constructed using dovetail joints, brass trims, and bail handles. The hinged lid has a recessed handle and a small central medallion. The wood has aged beautifully, taking on a warm red-brown tone over the century.

Dimensions:
32.5 in. width
15 in. depth
16 in. height

Condition notes:
In fair condition. The lid has visible splitting and there are surface scratches to the wood and rusting to the brass that are all consistent with the chest's age and use.
