Notify me when this product is available

This piece is quite special as it is made from expensive Camphor wood - it is also beautifully patinated. This piece comes from the port city of Tianjin & surrounding areas in North China. Our pieces are mostly 19th century & early 20th century They were usually made from elm, oak or catalpa and occasionally in camphorwood. The fittings are made from brass and are mostly circular in form, but occasionally rectangular. These were used for storage of textiles or treasured family items. They also were used as altar cabinets for family ancestor worship. Hence the joss stick burn marks on many of them. Mid to Late 19thC.
