19th Century Black Lacquered Jewellery Box

$1,100.45

About the Item

19th century Chinese black lacquered jewellery box circa 1860. Good quality shaped Chinese jewellery box with overstuffed top cushion. Hand painted in gold leaf on all surfaces, with the main feature being on the front. Original decorative metal lock plate and edging to corners. Hinged lid opens to reveal a reflective mirror on the underside of the lid and a compartment tray with further hand painted decoration. This tray lifts out to reveal further storage underneath. Expected minor losses to lacquer work.  Lock clasp does close and re-open by pulling firm on the button but no key present. Covering to cushion in need of replacement but illustrates well the ideal colour it should be. 1 small loss to metal corner decoration.
