Carved camphor wood chest LE-011B

A Chinese black lacquered heavily carved camphor wood chest. The beautiful fragrance that emanates from the inside helps to keep away moths, damp and retain the quality of the garments inside, essential for the sea-faring family this would have belonged to. It is decorated with dragon and phoenix carving and would have been given to couple on the occasion of their marriage and would have been delivered stuffed with brocades and silks,

The chest originated from the Southern coastal areas of China and would date from the mid 19th to the mid 20th century
