Lovely old box, black lacquer with mother of pearl inlay, in colors, and more inlay than usually found on these, on the top, sides, and even inside the box, very beautiful. This is a small jewelry or trinket box, with a top to one of the interior compartments. Has a lock, no key. We love the design on the top, a bird with peony and other flowers, on the side of the front lovely blue flowers, green leaves, colors throughout the inlay much prettier than the photos; and the inlay of MOP or abalone is in overall very nice condition, we see only a few places with missing inlay. This box measures 7" wide, 5 & 1/4" deep and is 2 & 1/2" tall. The box itself is in good condition structurally with mild age wear all over and a few dings here and there, still quite nice condition and a very unusual box.
