Antique Wooden Black Decorated Table Top Jewelry Chest Double Side Handles 6 Drawers

Regular price $205.00


Product Description:  This early wooden chest with side handles was possibly once used as a table top vanity chest in the Asian culture to conceal jewelry or other treasures. The chest and drawers are handcrafted with mortise and tenon construction, small nails. Early dry, black paint covers the exterior surface with original side handles. Although this chest provides the appearance of an ordinary box when closed, when the front door pulls down it reveals six drawers for storage. These drawers are made of a soft wood with gold painted decoration on the front with metal, dangling handles. This is a special, early collectible which should not be overlooked.
