A beautifully worn and ancient grand scale Chinese Ming Dynasty 17thC studded traveling trunk, studded with nails and old bound leather
This spectacular ancient trunk is textured by richly worn patina and dates to the late Ming dynasty and would have been used by a wealthy family or merchant to transport money or precious goods. The subdued, neutral exterior belies the brilliant black lacquer within, a finish that would have complemented the splendor of the valuable contents the trunk once stored. The original hardware adds simple decoration, each cloaked in a worn and ancient patina from centuries of use. A truly beautiful example of Ming-dynasty design, this grand traveling trunk lives on as a storied coffee table or blanket chest. Ming - Dynasty China 1600,s
