About

A stunning and rare antique Chinese armorial games box of rectangular form with over 110 matching armorial mother of pearl gaming counters. The black lacquer box is finely decorated with a central Chinese landscape scene, the centre with an armorial for Smith impaling Abbot. The box opens to reveal five lidded boxes each with similar decoration to that on the box outer and each with a central armorial crest. The box also contains 12 gaming trays, four of which are decorated with the same armorial as is the addition of the Pope Joan tray with rest of the trays painted with playing card graphics. The box has been well kept retaining excellent brightness and benefiting from having the original matching gaming counters. The box is not marked.
