This leads down to the front, sides and back, also all superbly carved with traditional Chinese scenes with a border of geometric and floral decoration.
The chest is supported by four carved feet in the form of foo dogs.
When the chest is opened the interior has a wonderful fragrance of camphor with a removable tray (could be used for clothing).
