Antique Chinese Black and Gold Octogonal Sewing Box

Sold

Large Chinese lacquer and gilt sewing box dating from early to mid nineteenth century. This box is gorgeous despite its rough condition. The delicate hand painted work is exceptional and you truly need to look thorough a magnifying glass to appreciate the skillful work. The gilt is two tone and the decoration depicts figures among pagodas and gardens. Other areas depict complex borders and floral designs.

This box would have once have had metal feet, handles, hinges and a key. The only hardware it retains is the lock. Makes you wonder what exactly this box has been through!
The paint is still vibrant on the body of the box, although a bit faded on the top. There are many areas of missing lacquer where the wood is exposed. The inside of the box is empty (no sewing tray) and the lacquer is peeling.
This item is in delicate condition but still has a lot of life as a beautiful decorative work of artistry.

Measures: 15.5" long x 12.5" wide x 9" high
