Fine Antique Chinese Rosewood Carved Trunk / Dowry Chest With Bats Camphor Lined. Hand carved of solid rosewood in China, a traditional chest or trunk is lined with aromatic camphor wood, which resists moths and insects as does cedar wood.
Note the carved bats to the four corners, a Chinese symbol of longevity and happiness. The original finish is quite well preserved. It has no tray to interior. The back is finished so it can be viewed from all sides. Heavy weight and superior carving show that this was a dowry chest for the daughter of an affluent family, holding her linens and silk embroidery.
Measurements are 41" long, 21" deep and 24 tall. Condition is very nice for its age. We do note a slight rub to the square molding to the front right symbol of the chest. Could easily be touched up.
