Midcentury Rosewood and Silver Box with Ancient Peruvian Textile

$1,475

About

Wonderful midcentury Peruvian rosewood box with a sterling silver framed lid. The lid made up of a charming piece of Chancay culture textile depicting a row of four birds or ducks in amusing aspect. I've always found these early textiles to be utterly endearing, the depictions of the ducks, though ancient, are so contemporary and amusing, even a bit cartoon like. The red dyed background and geometric border only highlight this enchanting scene. The rosewood box, incredibly, carved out of a single piece of wood, no joinery. Purchased in Lima, Peru by a New York City collector in the 1960s. The silver hallmarked Peru 925. The textile Chancay culture 1000-1450 AD.
