This is a very attractive vintage Chinese document box in faux cinnabar. It is quite large and substantial. This is not 'real' cinnabar which is the term used to describe items covered with many layers of lacquer and then carved by hand. This box was molded and then painted with red lacquer. The lid depicts a typical Chinese scene with mountains, trees and a pagoda.
It measures 9 inches by 11 inches by 4 inches and it is in generally good condition. As can be seen in the photographs, there are a few very small dings to the lacquer.
