Centuries ago, this handsome coffer may have served as the family storage chest for embroidered silks or formal clothing. Crafted by a Qing-dynasty artisan in the bustling port city of Tianjin, the 19th-century cabinet was likely commissioned as part of a bride's dowry. The quality of the workmanship is evident in the sideboard's concealed joinery and original brass hardware. The coffer's lacquered elmwood finish has worn beautifully with time to give the piece fantastic character and texture.
