Vintage Painted Chinese Chest from Shanxi

This deep red vintage Chinese chest is from Shanxi Province and dates from the 1940s. The front is decorated with a central motif of lotus flower symbolising purity and spiritual enlightenment. This is bordered with painted peony and convolvulus flowers, which are traditional symbols for status and wealth. During the restoration, this piece has been adapted with addition four feet to raise it from the ground. 

Unusually there is a matching pair for this chest.
