Chinese Lacquer Storage Trunk c. 1880 ~ 24.5" wide x 16 deep x 13

this old trunk arrived in SF maybe by a person coming to seek his fortune during the California gold rush The Chinese characters inside might give a clue of it's original owner or China origin?

It is in very good condition considering its history in China and at sea.. There are a few small dings on the corners, a tiny one on the top, and some nicks on an inside edge. brass carrying handles, three brass hinges and a brass lock with part missing.

The lacquer is rich deep dark brownish red with depth--smooth.

A Treasure! (chest)

Please write with any questions. A local pick up or delivery is preferred, but it can be sent at I don't know what cost. The amount charged will be the actual cost with no handling added...so a refund will be likely.

Many thanks
