Presented for sale is a fine late 19th century green lacquered Chinese hat box in three sections decorated with Chinoiseries. It's possible that these hat boxes were made for a Mandarin’s summer and autumn hats. The conical cover opens to reveal a circular tray to hold a summer hat, while the bottom section holds a cool weather hat.
The box is in good condition with some separation cracks to the conical top where there is wood shrinkage due to age, and also some wear to the Chinoiserie decoration imparting an older patina.
Size: 15” Height by 14 ¼” Diameter.
