You are bidding on a very nice genuine antique Chinese camphor chest from the late 1800s. Still retains lovely camphorwood smell when opened.

I am selling this family heirloom on behalf of the owner who is in his late 60s. This is an antique that belonged to his late grandfather, who died before he was born. He is selling this very reluctantly, and only because he has recently downsized his residence and now has less space.

Overall dimensions approximately 840 mm wide x 415 mm deep x 360 mm high. In very good condition. Sixteen riveted copper protective cappings on corners and part of vertical edges. Iron or steel handles on each end. Three hinges. Weighs approximately 14 kg. Brass or bronze lock mechanism but no key.

Will ship at buyer's cost, but shipping could be expensive due to size and weight, so prefer Howick or Pakuranga pick-up.
