Vintage Tibetan Chest with Floral Circles

This vintage Tibetan chest dates from the 1940s. It recently received very light restoration in an artisan workshop in Beijing. 

This joyous and unique piece contains a wealth of original detail, including several original hand-painted panels, detailed leatherwork and metal spurs covering each edge. Beautiful paintwork panels depict a series of floral circles, featuring Peonies. These flowers symbolize nobility, loyalty, friendship and enduring love. In Tibetan Buddhist paintings they are companions to spiritual development. 

This special trunk makes a warming and lively statement piece with bags of internal storage. Decorative artwork is seen across the trunk, with ornate ochre-colored scrolling detail surrounding each panel. This is ideal as a coffee or side table, a keep safe for treasured items, or equally at home by the end of a bed.
