Item details

Vintage from the 19th century


wood, paint, lacquer

This Chinese lacquered trunk was made in the late 1800s then made its way to the U.S. full of clothing and keepsakes of a hopeful Chinese immigrant, around the "turn" into the early 20th Century.

The beautiful painted figures on the chest are nearly faded now, but from the highly decorative work, we know that this chest was for a very special trip. Perhaps a new bride traveling to meet her husband? Crossing an ocean and then a continent to finally arrive at her destination? And how was the trunk used when it settled in its new home?

Approximate Dimensions: 24 x 16 x 10
