Product description

Qinghai, circa 1880
This attractive wooden box is from Qinghai in western China, where it would have been used to store and carry books and documents. The finish is original, the black lacquer now worn and weathered to reveal the pine wood underneath. As was traditional the front of the box is painted and Chinese characters are shown at either side against a contrasting red lacquer. Two further characters are shown on the back in a white diamond, Great as a little side table with useful storage.
