Description / Expertise

Made for the Chinese export market, this superb, well proportioned camphor wood trunk would make an ideal coffee table in today's world. Brass bound and with metal carrying handles which were a later addition. Ordinarily these trunks were packing cases for fragile fabrics. Camphor wood is a great repellent against insects. Chinese circa 1870 - 80.
