A beautiful little cinnabar box. It is highly detailed and, most interesting, the carving is in places over 1/16" deep. The background is black - even though it may not look black in the photos. The red is a brownish red, more maroon than red. There is some wear to the inside edges but to be expected, the inside has a chip to the lacquer on the bottom and there is a small piece missing on the lacquer on the bottom. The size is 3 5/8 x 2 3/8 x 1 3/8. This is a very finely carved piece.
Thank you for looking.
