Why we like it
The intricacy of detail of the polychrome and gilt decoration is simply astonishing on this black lacquer box, despite it being nearly 200 years old. A rare oportunity to own such a wonderfully decorative and useful item.
In good antique condition, the box has minor splits to joints and minor wear to decoration.
