This 19th century chest from Northern China was designed as a large bank to collect & hold monetary savings. The slot in the removable board on the top allows coins to be inserted and later removed by lifting the board. The carved multi-paneled front was typical of provincial furniture of this period. The lacquer & iron fittings have developed a pleasing texture and patina after many years of use.
