This attractive Chinese dark-coloured hinged square wooden handkerchief box is decorated with a scene of a temple and bridges, surrounded by a repeating floral motif in mother-of-pearl, the body set with four panels engraved with landscapes. There is a short crack in the base of the box and the lid has a longer crack mainly visible on the inside, but on the outside at the top there are two of the small mother-of-pearl oval leaves that are missing, which could possibly be replaced. There are a few very small losses of the stringing and the mother-of-pearl on the top but all in all, the box is in very good condition for age. 8.5 ins (22cm) x 3.5 ins (9cm) x 8.5 ins (22cm). Weight 1054 grams. This item can be seen in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 402. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $60.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
