    That is a very elaborate piece of furniture. I have to say that I have never heard of Green Japanning . Maybe the result of a sheltered life.

    Very nice chest. I notice in the auction photos they have it photographed in black light, I have been seeing that here in America as well. Very clever I think to do this to make potential buyers more comfortable the paint is old/original when they can’t examine the piece in person.
