Antique Camphor Wood Chest, 19th C. RARE, RED Pigskin, PAINT DECORATED
China Trade, mid 19th Century Camphor Wood Chest, RARE PAINT DECORATED. (Camphor Wood is highly prized for its fragrance and insect repelling qualities, and furniture made of Camphor Wood was brought back by sailors and sea captains returning from trading missions around the world). The chest is structurally sound and in very good overall condition, with very minor wear to paint decoration and with some old repairs to paint decoration. The trunk is still fragrant, with original brass binding and lift handles, with original lock, covered in original red paint decorated pigskin and trimmed with brass studs; a few of the studs are missing. 35" Long X 19" Wide X 16 1/5 High. ** WE GUARANTEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF OUR MERCHANDISE AS REPRESENTED ** 688BXBSMT
