Fine Antique [ Circa 1870 ] Japanese style Chinoiserie Papier-mache wall pocket. From an estate purchase and originally sold by the famous Antiques dealer Byerly's in North Carolina. The original sales tag is still attached . We are enclosing a newspaper article referring to this firm. We are not certain of the country of origin .
This is an Antique and shows wear as described in our photos. There is one blemish in the lacquer as shown in photo # 8. Overall the Pocket is in excellent condition commensurate with it's age. The lacquer causes some reflection and the piece is better looking than the photos show. Photo # 9 shows the original price tag still attached for $ 275.00 from the Antique shop.
For the collector of fine Antiques and a wonderful display piece for the Interior Design Trade.
