Chinese Red Lacquer Table Top Box with Lift Lid

The luminous colour seen on this antique Chinese box circa 1875 is known as Chinese lacquer red and indicates a desire for good fortune. Please be sure to enlarge and zoom on the photographs to see the hand worked surface and bronzed metal hardware that are essential elements of the appeal of the box. Made to fit easily on a table top where it may be both admired as an object and used for storage the simplicity of the design makes it an easy addition to a modern interior. When the lid is opened a lift out tray is revealed which may be removed to access the deeper well inside. Notice how the interior is a darker colour than the exterior both inside the box and on the removable tray. The box has a circular medallion with a hinged clasp as well as a handle on each side as this box was originally designed to be moved as needed.
