Lovely old and unusual Chinese seal paste box and cover with intricately carved cicada atop the lid acting as a finial. The naturalistic form of the cicada is well carved with wings tucked in and etched lines indicating the veins in the wings. The insect is perched on an organic foliage with leaves fanning out forming a geometric frame. The color of the soapstone is a soft vanilla with hints of pale lemon lime, pretty color palette compliments the organic nature of the box. Excellent condition measuring 3" in diameter and 2 1/2" high. Some irregularities to the surface of the box indicative of the piece having been hand carved. Perfect for jewelry or small items.
