This is quite lovely and very interesting. The three men on the cover all have different items. One is a scholar holding a tablet; another holds a peach, which is a symbol of longevity. I am not sure what is tied to the end of his staff, nor what the middle man is holding. A very interesting bird is flying at their right, and there is something hard to identify on the left. On two sides of the bottom are yet two other scenes. One is an elderly couple and the other two different figures. Beautiful flowers all around the base and the cover's border. The inside of the bottom of the box has fruit on their stem. The bottom is signed.
