Description
Beautiful antique northern bank chest with a Fu (Blessing) character written on a rice paper placed upside down. Possible old replacements of wood.

The pronunciations for the word "upside down" and the word "arrival" are the same in Chinese language. This is why we often see a "Fu" or a Bat painted or placed upside down in Chinese art for its auspicious meaning in blessing a home. Bat is also pronounced the same as the "Fu (Blessing)" in Chinese language.

Dimensions: 43 1/2"w x 20"d x 32"h
