Chinese Export Secretaire Chest

  • H: 117 cm (46 1/16")
  • W: 92 cm (36 1/4")
  • D: 51 cm (20 1/16")

Tall Chinese secretaire chest, similar to a campaign chest.

With a wonderful drop front, this chest would have been made for Chinese export and still retains its original brass drawer pulls and carrying handles. 

A vast amount of furniture was made for the Western market during the 18th and 19th Centuries and was predominately produced by Chinese cabinet makers. The go-to wood was camphor wood because of its aromatic timber. It is an often misconception that all export furniture is composed of Camphor but it is commonly more exotic than we think... 

This is a fantastic piece of storage furniture that will be both stylish and useful for many years to come!
