This is a Highly quality vintage Chinese export Claw and Ball chest trunk box with Camphor wood. It is 40 inches wide, 42 inches with handles counted, 24 inches tall and 21 inches deep. The camphor wood have wonderful fresh scent which is a natural repellent against moths and wood boring insects. The age of the trunk box is unknown and to my best guess is that it was made in Early 1900's. Chinese families used the trunk as wedding gift, storing blankets, linens, and personal papers.
Later years, the trunks were used to store tea, silks, and porcelains for the export. The story behind the high carved wood was about "Chiang Tai Kung Meeting Wen Wang" during the Chou Dynasty.
