Sturdy chests such as this one, with a front door that opens downward, were designed to store blankets and clothing. Auspicious symbols, many signifying longevity, frequently decorated the metal hardware. Indeed, the large hinges on this bandaji feature the Chinese character “shou,” meaning long life.
