Chinese Lacquer Chest

An exceptionally rare and probably unique early 18th Century Chinese lacquer chest. The top section with rectangular moulded top in exquisite condition, with a border framing a raised scene depicting exotic buildings within landscape above three drawers all depicting similar scenes; retaining the original brass handles and escutcheons, the sides again featuring similar Chinese lacquer scenes. The lower section with moulded lip and a single drawer above a central hanging acorn filial, standing on four circular legs with bell caps joined by a shaped stretcher having a turned central finial and terminating in bun feet.
