A small green leather on camphor wood Chinese Export Trunk.

This trunk is typical of the many that were purchased by Westerners as they passed through the Chinese ports on their way further east. The trunk is both decorated and strengthened with brass studs and has a brass ring handle. The strong smell of the camphor wood would offer the clothes inside some protection. At some stage the lock has been removed. Mid 19th Century.
