Out of stock


An over 100 years old original antique storage trunk in great condition. The piece was originally made in the 1920s in very traditional dark red in Shanxi Province. It has been restored and relacquered and kept the original red tone. In the 1960s during the China Cultural Revolution, the front of the trunk was added with stencil painted the Chinese word ‘Loyalty’ in the centre and the slogan ‘Long live Chairman Mao’ on each side of the piece.  This is a quite large trunk which would be an extremely attractive focal point if placed it in the hallway or as a TV stand.
