Chinese Parchment Chest with European Travel Labels
Parchment, cloth, bronze
30 ½” wide x 20” deep x 13 ¾” high
A beautifully patinated parchment trunk, lightweight and spacious, with vintage travel labels on the exterior. The interior lined with blue fabric. Bronze handles and latch typical for this kind of rectangular case manufactured in China. Estrid Ericson and Josef Frank liked to convert beautiful trunks like this into side-tables by adding simple wooden legs.
