This is a classic late 19th century Chinese toiletry or dressing box. It is of dark timber and blackened fittings. At the base are two pull-out drawers but the main feature is a fold-out mirror which can be viewed once a securing pin is removed to reveal this compartment. The drawers most likely were used for vanity items and one could possibly have also been used for small pieces of jewellery. The condition is very good for age. This box would be a most practical item to use or of interest to display. Box measures 12.25 ins (31cm) x 9.75 ins (2.cm) x 12.5 ins (31.8cm). Weight 3155 grams. This item appears in my book, "Antique Boxes, Inside and Out" on page 393. Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $73.00 USD – with no tracking is cheaper.
