Also acquired a patina over time. The chest edges are even darker, almost black. Carved scenes of Chinese life on all sides. Except for the back which is flat.
All 4 corners are dovetailed and are. Interspersed with brass corner pieces. Hinged lid which stays open on its own - very.
Handy when you're putting things in and taking them out. Engraved brass latch and back plate. Chest is camphor-lined and has a fabulous camphor. Smell (similar to eucalyptus) when opened.
There is a ditty box on the one side. A few common shrinkage splits 1 on the top and 3 smaller.
In the front, and a couple of scuffs. Minor loss of wood on one back foot which faces towards the wall. Size: 42 across x 21 deep x 24 high (including lid). Please review all photos carefully as to condition. Feel free to contact Quail and Bear with any questions or for more photos.
