For thousands of years, traditional Chinese architecture had no interior closets, and trunks and cabinets were used as a storage solution for clothing, precious books, and scrolls. This monumentally scaled 19th-century trunk would have been used in a grand home. With elegant proportions, clean lines, and cabriole legs, the chest is a perfect example of how the beauty, function, and form of classical Chinese furniture influenced modern design aesthetics. A single brass key hole plate shines on the front of the chest like a full moon in the night sky.
