A beautiful hardwood jewelry box with a yellow silk interior, very clean at 50 years old, with an auspicious Shou character on the lid! The Shou character is a symbol for longevity, and is one of the five blessings (longevity, wealth, health, love of virtue, and a peaceful passing). The box is quality made, with finger joinery, brass corners on the lid and body, brass handles, and various brass adornments on the corners. It is quite heavy. The top layer features places to but rings and a central tray. The whole top layer can be removed to reveal additional storage beneath. Functional! They don't make therm with this level of quality and care today. Condition: we repaired the interior retaining hinges, and refinished the bottom. We shined up the Shou character, because after all it is very symbolic. Outside is virtually perfect! Interior silk is very clean with no tears; there is light, very slight wear and discoloration on one of the ring slots, but hardly worth mentioning and really not noticeable. It's in super great condition, and ready for the next fifty years of service! Measures 9 3/4 inches long by 6 inches deep by 4 3/4 inches tall - a full sized jewelry box.
