Crafted in the 1900s in the Shanxi province of China, this Black Lacquer Painted Box is great for decorative as well as functional purpose. Back in the day, it was used to hold different types of sweets or delicacies and often given as a gift.

The box features beautiful paintings that have slightly faded over time. Nevertheless, you can still see where they are and the faded look actually lends an air of authentic beauty to the box.

Boxes that are well-preserved like this one are quite rare. These would make as wonderful decorative pieces inside your home or even as a present to someone who loves the Chinese culture.
