This 19th-century chest hailing out of Northern China started its life as a storage trunk with a solid lacquered front. Artisans skilled in traditional Chinese carpentry reconfigured it into a two-door chest and applied additional coats of lacquer, achieving a variegated red with colored undertones from its past.
