Chinese Twelve-Drawer Chest


This twelve-drawer mortise and tenon construction chest is a Classic Qing Dynasty design, handcrafted in Shanxi Province out of Elmwood. The clean lines and simple, handcrafted hardware are strikingly modern. It may have once been used for storage in a woman's sleeping quarters, filled with silks, curios, and other personal items. With all its compartments, the coffer would play well today as a sideboard or credenza. Additional dimensions Drawers: 13" W x 11.25" D x 3.5" H.
