Wow! This big jewelry box has hand carved serpentine on three sides, and is festooned with brass on every side but the back and bottom. It has five drawers that pull out to reveal silk brocade interiors that are made to hold rings, bracelets or whatever you desire. These old Chinese jewelry boxes are beautiful and decorative, and the larger ones are really hard to find. It's 11 inches tall, 5 and 3/4 inches deep and 7 inches wide! Condition: great, the bottom drawer at one time had two levels, a top that pulled out to reveal another layer. The top alas is gone, but that just makes it a roomier drawer (probably why it was removed). Some very minor discoloration to the brass from age, and one scratch on the very back of the box that we colored in with the appropriate furniture stick. Way cool and functional!
