DIMENSIONS 30.0ʺW × 21.5ʺD × 30.0ʺHThe detail of the design on these 1940's pair of Japanese lacquered trunks is rich and well designed. We love them placed as a pair of trunks for a coffee table look. But the ingenious design really shines when the trunks or chests are stacked on top of each other. The floral designs were painted to match perfectly when stacked.


We believe these to be storage chests, made in Japan in the mid 1940's. Black and white lacquer with original brass hardware and hinges. The interior of each trunk is black lacquer with leather straps.

Each measures 30" W x 21.5" D x 15" H -
30" total height when stacked.

There is some cracking and chips to the lacquer, mostly on the edges. Minor restoration could be taken to restore these areas (see photos.) We love them just as they are. Each corner has some lacquer loss or chips. There are a few crazing marks to the surface of the lacquered paint due to age and use.
All in all, the chests are in good condition without major cracks to the body of each piece. The interiors are in excellent condition. The chests are not faded and the designs are bright.
