The paintings are kept in mint condition and add great value to the trunk. Large inside storage space. The trunk is handcrafted and structured with wooden pegs and a tenon structure, which is the very traditional craftsmanship for furniture making in ancient China. Heavy copper hardware. Circa early of 19th century. Original patina and wear. Made from Elm wood, the trunk is very solid and has been kept in excellent condition.
