Wooden Box With Beautiful Hand-Painted Scene and Wonderful Intricate Marquetry Design

This is a lightweight, possibly sycamore, very old oriental wooden box. It has a beautifully hand-painted artwork on the lid with a peacock, birds and flowers. The inlaid marquetry patterns are truly exquisite.

Size: 5 1/2 inches by 4 inches by 1 5/8 inches deep.

Circa: This was represented to me to have been made in the late 1800s. I cannot verify this, so am listing it and selling it as "vintage" instead of antique.

Condition: This appears to have been varnished after it was painted. Some of the varnish has rubbed off from the painting due to age, but I can find no damage to the artwork. The lid closes well, and I can find no damage to the wood.
