19th Century Papier Mâché Box Inlaid with Mother-of-Pearl with Gold Gilt and Chinese Figures
This is a wonderful mid-century papier mâché box inlaid with Mother-of-Pearl with gold gilt lines of swirls, trees, tables and terrain. Three Chinese figures (Monks?) are walking in the garden.
The box opens to a beautifully turquoise surface.
The box measures 7 inches wide, 5 3/4 inches deep, and 1 5/8 inches high. The condition of the box is good. There is a repair at the left back corner of the lid.
