This is a highly unusual and colorful cigarette box (we know that was its intended purpose because it is lined with wood), that features a Nepalese stupa (ceremonial tower) behind a traditional Chinese temple. What is the exact meaning of this juxtaposition? We can't figure it out! Never the less, we cleaned and polished it to a high shine. It's in fantastic condition, retaining 99% of the delicate enamels, in vibrant colors. We think it's great, and you'll love it too. Pristine wood interior (no odors). C1900-1920. Measures 5 3/4 X 3 3/4 X 1 3/4 inches, or 14.6 X 9.5 X 4.4 centimeters. Makes a great dresser box, decorative box, or secret treasure box.
