This vintage chest is from Gansu province in Northern China and dates from circa 1900. Constructed from poplar, the front and top are painted with a deep red that has softened with age. The front is further decorated with delicate flowers, butterflies and fruit, painted in a faded gold. This same gold has been used to create a delicate border mixing geometric and floral motifs. This chest has recently been lightly restored in an artisan workshop in Beijing area, varnish has been applied to protect the original artwork. We think this piece can add a lovely bohemian touch to a contemporary interior.
Dimensions: 77.5(w) x 48(d) x 42(h) cm
