Trunks

Chinese Antique Trunks
Trunks were the workhorse of Qing Dynasty home furnishing being versatile and portable. They were used for everything from transporting money and valuables to storage of paintings and out of season garments.


Most trunks from the provincial areas were made from inferior woods and so were painted with regionally popular designs. Trunks made from better woods were usually left unpainted.


Locking mechanisms were essential for trunk storage as access would have been limited to only a few members of the household.
