Chinese Qing Dynasty 19th Century Altar Coffer with Carved Geometric Motifs
A Chinese Qing Dynasty period carved altar coffer from the 19th century, with two drawers and geometric motifs. Created in China during the Qing Dynasty, this altar coffer features a rectangular top with central board, sitting above two dovetailed drawers fitted with brass hardware on floral backplates. The lower compartment, only accessible through the upper drawers, demonstrates that this coffer was likely a money chest.
The facade attracts our attention with its beautifully carved geometric and rosette motifs flanked with scrolling spandrels. With its elegant lines and great attention to details, this 19th century Chinese Qing Dynasty coffer will bring a fascinating dimension to any room, a bedroom, living room or perhaps even in a dining room.
