Early 20th Century Chinese Ruyi Jewelry Box



Made circa 1900 in Jiangsu province, this jewelry chest is ornamented with handmade brass hardware and was once used by a woman to contain her personal treasures in the intimate quarters of her traditional Chinese home. The top drawer has a lotus-shaped pull, while the lower two have pulls configured as ancient locks, symbols intended to protect from evil and to bring good luck and long life. Handmade of brass, the pulls contrast with the chest’s birch construction, left unfinished to showcase its natural grain and golden color. The chest’s top lifts to reveal a framed mirror. Additional dimensions: Height with mirror extended: 16" H Top tray: 7.75" W x 5.5" D x .5" H Top drawer: 6.75" W x 9" D x 1.75" H Bottom drawer: 6.75" W x 9.5" D x 1.75" H.
