Late 19th Century hand painted Chinese red lacquer bamboo box with fitted lid . Gilt and black decoration portrays flora in a bonsai planter. Originally used to store hats - it is the perfect size to protect whatever treasure out of sight. Measures 10" diameter x 7.75" high. The fitted lid does not appear to be original as the decoration does not align with that on the lower section. In very good antique condition. Lower portion paint/Lacquer has various marks and "dings" commensurate with antique age and years of use. Upper lid paint finish has more wear/tear on it - see photos for details. Overall structurally sound and quite sturdy. Lid interior features a Chinese import wax stamp. Note: Please visit our shop for three additional yet different Chinese bamboo "hat" boxes.

 

NOTE: A $25 shipping cost will be charged above the purchase price for FedEx Ground delivery within the 48 contiguous domestic states. See the "Shipping & Handling" sidebar for details.
