Very attractive lacquered box. Made to hold two sets of playing cards but would also be a useful addition to a desk to hold business cards etc.
The box is finished in a brown lacquer with a hand painted red and gold dragon on the lid. The corners are protected by decorative brass, "pierced plates". And there is an oriental design rounded to the front of the box.
Condition is very nice for the age. The lacquer is mostly very good with just minor signs of wear to the edges. The brass is tarnished and discoloured in places. All conducive with age. We have not cleaned the brass as we like to leave it to the buyer to decide how far to go. Inside the box is very clean for the age and shows signs of little use.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
measures: 4 1/2 inches x 2 7/8 inches & 3 1/8 tall
