19th Century Chinese Keeper's Chest


This 19th century chest from Northern China was designed as a large bank to collect and hold monetary savings. The slot in the removable board on the top allows coins to be inserted and later removed by lifting the board. The carved multi-paneled front was typical of provincial furniture of this period. The lacquer and iron fittings have developed a pleasing texture and patina after many years of use. Additional dimensions: Opening: 13" W x 10.5" H Interior: 38.25" W x 15" D x 16.25" H.
