Antique Vintage 1800's J. L. George Wood Hand Carved Chinese Trunk/chest:
This is a hand carved J.L George wood trunk. The inner inscription reads J.L. George 895 Avenue Rd. Tel 34732 Chinese beaux arts carving furniture in wood. Carving furniture in jade stone. Carving furniture in brass. Carving chest. Made in China. I believe it is from the late 1800's or early 1900's. A friend of my father's brought this back from a trip he took to Shanghai in 1929. The exterior has some exquisite hand carving as shown in the photos. It is in great condition. The top does have some fading, as if it sat in the sunlight for a period of time, and some minor scratches. Please see photos. It measures 20 inches wide, 21 inches tall, and 40 inches in length. The brass hardware is all in excellent condition. The interior seems to be in exceptional shape, with the only blemish being some mild buckling up of the wood on the bottom, in one area. I do not see any structural damage.
