A bespoke chest commissioned in Northern China out of Elmwood at the end of the 19th century, the quality of it's Qing Dynasty workmanship is evident in the beautifully carved drawer fronts. The scrolling vine and lotus symbolize purity because the flowers rise out of the mud to bloom. It is likely this chest was once used for storage in a woman's sleeping quarters, filled with silks, curios, and other personal items.
