Chinese Three-Drawer Coffer

Handsome, warm wood and a well-worn lacquer patina accentuate this side chest’s mature aura. The sizable drawers, with rectangular metal faceplates and pulls, sit above a plain center panel that conceals a hidden compartment (or ”menhuchu”). The side panels and apron are relief carved with a sinuous, archaistic dragon motif that is most often seen in traditional jade carvings.
