Late 19th or Early 20th Century Chinese Sandalwood and Pigskin Trunk

About

Constructed of sandalwood this truck is covered in a fine light colored pigskin. The form and materials are ages old and have been used in China throughout its history. This trunk dates from the late imperial era into the first years of the republic period, circa 1890-1915. The piece shows some wear and use giving it character and charm. The lock plate and handles are of bronze with a nice old surface and the interior has a lovely old blue silk lining. The old chop mark in black ink, as well as the printed Chinese paper label inside, are nice touches not often seen. These make great coffee tables and storage areas today and require little effort to maintain and use. Measures: 21 D, 31.5 W, 14 T.
