A lidded lacquer box with a landscape design that has been rubbed or brushed to give added color and texture to the leaves and surfaces.

The wooden box has been coated in layers of red and black lacquer to build up a surface. This surface was then molded with a design on the box lid of a scholar in a mountain retreat. The design was then brushed or rubbed to give added texture to the rocks and leaves. This brushing has also given the box a matte finish. You can especially see the contrast of shiny and matte finish on the flange. The sides are molded with key fret and archaistic designs. The base and interior are a black lacquer.

CONDITION
