Description

A Chinese intricately carved alter coffer with doors and drawers from the 19th century. This unusual 19th century Chinese altar coffer displays intricate carving on its sides and doors. The coffer features carved flame patterns on each side and on the apron. Intricate geometrical motifs as circles and flowers decorate the face and the doors. The drawers, which sit above the doors, open thanks to a hardware lock and elegant leaf-shaped handles.

 

This Chinese altar coffer showcases a great attention to detail, enhanced by a warm brown lacquer. Probably used as an altar for a traditional ancestors’ cult, this coffer would bring a fascinating element to any room, a bedroom, living room or perhaps even in a dining room.
