C e l es ti a l N o n e s u ch. A gorgeously detailed wooden carved octagonal box, rubbed with cinnabar lacquer, marked on the inside of the base. Beautifully carved with floral scenes and clawed feet, and what appear to be eight auspicious signs around the top, crowned by a lotus flower. Presumably Antique Chinese, presumably dating to the Ming dynasty. A great object for study or display, this will make a nice addition to any student or appreciators collection of Chinese art and artifacts.
Very good condition with what looks to be an old repair on the lid of the box. Exhibits signs of age such as surface wear and weathering.
