Expertly constructed of northern elmwood, this early 20th-century ice chest from Tianjin is an exceptional find. Unusual for its fine exterior, this chest would have once belonged to a wealthy Qing-dynasty family or merchant. The chest is lined with sheet metal and fitted with two wooden shelves for ample storage. The cabinet opens from both the top and a small front panel, allowing for easy access to ice and goods stored below. A relic of a bygone era, this exquisite ice chest is wonderful as a storied side table or console.

Additional Dimensions:
Top Shelf: 14.75"D x 26.5"W x 10"H
Bottom Shelf: 14.75"D x 26.5"W x 12"H
