A traditional Chinese hand carved dowry chest or trunk from about 60 years ago could also be a coffee table. Deeply carved of teak and lined with camphor, the aromatic wood naturally repels insects, like our cedar. Sculpted ship and garden motifs are richly detailed.
The restored finish is in excellent condition on this antique furniture. Inside is a lift out tray, used for silks, part of a young woman's dowry to move to her new home upon her marriage. The solid brass working padlock and key are original.
To use as a coffee or cocktail table, it might be nice to fit a plate glass top.
Size is 36" long, 18" deep and 19" tall.
