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 and lacquer finishes, have reconfigured the trunk into a two-door chest, brushing by hand additional coats of lacquer to achieve a variegated red with colored undertones from its past.
