Early 20th Century Chinese Rosewood Scroll Case

About

Crafted of fine rosewood, this early 20th century scroll case likely once sat in the studio of an esteemed Qing-dynasty scholar. The perfect size for a rolled-up scroll, the box was used to store and protect his works of traditional calligraphy and landscape painting. The lid slides open to reveal the box interior, without the use of hinges or hardware. Simply designed with clean lines, this scroll box puts the fine grain and coloring of rosewood on full display.
