This superb hand carved opium scale box, features poppies to the lid which slides across to reveal the original scale within. The four bronze elephants are weights and each one has a trunk that hooks onto the tail of the larger elephant in front. This keeps them together and is very cute from a display point of view.
The condition is excellent for the age, the box having a deep rich patina. The scale has signs of use and age and has not been cleaned so retains its patina. The elephants are very good with slight surface signs of use and age.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
measures: Box: approx 8 1/2 inches x 4 inches at the widest point and 1 1/2 inches thick
