This Authentic Chinese Antique Coffer is also known as "Butterfly Cabinet" in China. The style of the coffer has great influence of Mongolian furniture during Qing Dynasty (Qing Dynasty in China was ruled by Mongolian people).

The apron under the "secret compartment" decorates with ornate carvings of floral design pattern. Copper hardware. The customers who bought these style of the cabinets from us before, used them as Kitchen Island by adding up marble top, or as Vanity cabinet with vessel sink, or as night table next to bed, and many other uses. The coffer is handcrafted and structured with wooden pegs and tenon structure, which is the very traditional craftsmanship for furniture making in ancient China. Original Wear and Patina. Handmade from combination of Camphor and Elm wood with beautiful wood grain, the coffer is very solid and has been kept in excellent condition. Circa early of 19th century.
