Here is a rectangular lacquered box in cinnabar red. The interior and bottom are shiny black lacquer. The lid has a beautiful classic Chinese landscape design with a sage crossing a river, approaching a temple behind pine trees on the mountainside. The lid's border is a running meander design of cloud scrolls. The 4 sides depict a flying dragon with a keyfret background carved in black. Condition is superb given its age, a very minor chip, and slight hairline crack in lid (see photos). On the interior, there is a small spot in the lid where the lacquer has been worn. Circa 1930. Width is 5", depth is 4 1/4", height is 2".
