Antique Chinese Red Lacquer Gilded Trunk Kuang Hsu Period China circa 1875

An antique Chinese red lacquer trunk with gilded detail from the Kuang Hsu period China circa 1875. Please notice the beautiful gilded detail that moves across the front surface of this storage trunk and how it glistens in the reflected light of an interior. The trunk retains its handsome iron hardware with the focus being on the butterfly shaped locking mechanism that when closed secures the top that opens onto the lower section. When the clasp is closed there is a pin that threads through the raised double arms to keep the trunk locked. There is a handle on each side as the trunk was made to be moved from space to space and they match the hardware on the front. The trunk has now been mounted on a custom stand that features a distinctive "chou" foot so it may float in front of a sofa and be equally attractive when seen from all four sides.
