This elegant 19th-century low elmwood chest is adorned with finely carved floral scrollwork, spanning from the apron to the spandrels and across all seven drawers. In a traditional northern Chinese home, this type of chest would have been placed beside a raised platform called a kang, which was used as a sleeping and living space. Likely used to store dishware and other useful objects, this ornate chest would have been the at center of daily life.
