Early 18th Century Chinese Jichimu Seal Box

About

This early 18th century seal box showcases the delicate, feathery grain of jichimu, or "chicken-wing wood," a hardwood native to the island of Hainan and an extremely rare find today. The box is made in a classical Ming style and form, with all original brass throughout. The placement of the hardware reflects the austere refinement of an artist scholar of the time. This box would have been used to hold a personalized chop or seal, a tool used to mark, or "sign," a scholar's work.
