A substantial period storage box with large ornate solid brass furniture. A large antique Chinese wooden linen chest such as this is difficult to date precisely but is likely to be late 19th or early 20th century. Oriental garment and fabric storage chests such as this were typically made from camphor wood which is a natural insect repellent. The three-quarter lid is also synonymous with these fine pieces allowing the lid to be fully opened even if the chest is against a wall. The clasp would not have had a lock but a long pin or bolt to pass through both hasps - unfortunately one of the left side handle is missing. The chest is constructed using hand cut finger joints and the lid has a ridged closure to further protect the contents. A hugely impressive piece that would look equally at home in a rustic or contemporary interior.
