A beautiful red leather over wood Chinese trunk dating from 1800 with original fittings including hinges, loop handles at the sides and hasp. Decorated with gilt tooling and featuring reserves on the top of a kylin tiger. The bottom is black lacquer. The panels and sides are in very good condition - however the corners of the lid have split open because the wood underneath the leather has shrunk with age. The good news is there is no damage to the decoration.

A few areas of loss. Worth fixing or works and displays well as-is.
