Dated to the early 20th century, this petite cabinet beautifully displays the clean lines and perfect proportions of classic Chinese furniture design. The coffer was originally used for general household storage in a woman's quarters, and doubled as an altar for ancestor worship, as evidenced by the flanged top. The cabinet's even, black lacquer finish is punctuated by its original brass hardware, now textured by a dark patina from a century of use. Minimally decorated, this elegant coffer fits into any interior as an entryway console or sofa table.
