Looking to add an antique piece to your collection? This Painted Box with Figures could be just what you're looking for.

Made around the 20th century, each piece comes decorated in brightly lit red lacquer and then topped off with beautiful paintings. Over time, the paintings have worn out and you can barely see them but this gives the piece so much character.

The original paintings actually had bright flowers, birds and foo dogs on it. And the box itself was used as a way to hold presents for young little boys, often given by the grandfather.

All of the boxes have been altered at some point, some of them repainted although this one still features its original painting right at the front portion.

Available. Please expect up to 7 days for delivery.
