Antique Chinese Trunk on New Wooden Stand for use today as a Coffee Table

SOLD This antique Chinese trunk has been offered a new life as a coffee table. Originally. the top of the truck would probably have lifted open. Today, access to the interior is via two doors. The chest has a beautiful black lacquer finish. The doors are painted in bright yellows, browns, and reds depicting a garden scene and other Chinese symbols and characters. I was immediately attracted to this trunk when I discovered it in Beijing. I think the contrasts of the yellows, browns and reds against the black lacquer allows the painted scene to "pop", and will add warmth and interest to any room in which it finds a home. The truck rests in the newly crafted carved wooden stand. This presents the chest nicely and raises it off of the floor. While the stand does make the chest work better as a coffee table, it can be removed. The hinges and the moon shaped medallion are made of brass
