A work of art in itself, this finely woven Qing-dynasty trunk likely once stored prized painted scrolls. Framed in elmwood, the trunk’s panels are lined with thin reeds that were painstakingly woven by a skilled artisan. The trunk’s top opens to reveal a rich red lacquer interior that contrasts beautifully with the rich, black-lacquered exterior. Iron hardware and a gem- and gold-accented carved base panel add eye-catching detail.
