18th-19th Century Finely Woven Chinese Scroll Trunk

$5,780

About

This 18th-19th century finely woven trunk was originally used to safely store painted scrolls. A skilled artisan painstakingly wove thin-as-hair reeds to cover each of the side panels, protected and reinforced by original brass corner mounts. The top maintains its original black lacquer and the inside is lined in a veneer of aromatic camphor wood, which was used similarly to the way cedar is used to line a closet, to keep contents fresh. Additional Dimensions: Interior: 23.75" W x 16" D x 6.25" H.
