Vintage Chinese Wedding Chest
Design Plus Gallery presents a Vintage Chinese wedding chest. Chinese tradition says that these cabinets were given to new brides filled with bed wares by her parents. The round Brass piece on the front is meant to symbolize unity in the new marriage. Later on the couple would use the cabinet to store their belongings. The really old ones had an interior false bottom so that you could hide your valuables. This one does not have that feature, instead it has two very usable drawers.
