Antique Lacquer Chinese Opium Pillow Fine Oriental Decorative Art

Offering for sale a very rare to find old opium pillow. This one is very heavily lacquered with lovely black and deep red designs and a fabulous sheen ! So named for their use, to keep the head and neck cool and relaxed while laying on the floor, now being grabbed up by collectors and decorators. This one is in really great condition, no cracks or repairs, little scuffs, it has had very good care and little use. It measures 8 & 1/2" long, 5 & 1/2" wide and 3 & 1/2" deep. Usually one finds lacquer over wood, but I think this may be more of a paper mache or similar material under the lacquer as it has a slightly "soft" feel when you lay on it. We acquired this from a fine antiques dealer locally, it is the first time we ever found such a nice one !
