Antique Chinese Trunk with Painted Opera Scene


This black lacquered trunk from Shanxi Province is decorated with an intricately painted and colorful scene from a classical Chinese Opera. The main panel "opera stage" features a man and a woman seated at a tea table, perhaps courting; while being chaperoned. The main painted panel is framed with two borders of painted flowers and Chinese symbols. These borders are further surrounded by panels of additional painted flowers and symbols. The top, sides and the back of the truck are lacquered black. The chest's interior has a clear finish. It features a top latch and two "wheel" pull handles. This chest would become the focal point of any room, especially when used as a coffee table.
