19c Chinese Carved Cinnabar Lacquer Card Cigarette Case W Dragons Crashing Waves For Sale

19c Chinese Carved Cinnabar Lacquer Card Cigarette Case W Dragons Crashing Waves

I am pleased to offer this week for sale this fabulous 19c Chinese carved cinnabar lacquer card and cigarette case combined. This case was produced in Canton, China where most all the cinnabar was made during the 19c sometime around the c1870s and would have been an expensive item for the time and even though there are no intials or crest I believe it was most likely a commission piece due to the overall stunning quality. The cinnabar lacquer is of the best quality being that deep true red color and has been carved to depict full bodied dragons over a full background of crashing waves of the most delicate carved nature with both sides also containing the flaming pearl of wisdom. I hope that the photos I have included can show the true magic that the Cantonese carver executed here as the dragons have individual tiny scales, detailed 5 toed feet with even the smallest wrinkles to them and the facial features are also stunning with the horns, whiskers, teeth andtongueshowing realistic detailing. The hair on the back of the head has extremely fine lines depicting individual hairs and as mentioned the waves upon high magnification shows each one with angled carved lines giving it an almost matte finish until one looks close. I cannot stress enough about this fine quality of workmanship and I can comfortably say that there could be no better than this! The inside is finished in glossy black lacquer with one side deeper for cigarettes and the other side more shallow and shaped inside to hold calling cards or todays business cards. Condition is excellent with only a couple of short barely noticeable stress lines on a few outside corners and the inside shows some chips and light wear to the black lacquer but the hinge and push button release are in fine working condition allowing the case to close nice and square and the carving is free of any chips or losses as this is simply a incredible case. Sizes: Width 3-3/4" x Height 3-1/8" x Thickness 7/8". If you collect card cases, cigarette cases or cinnabar then this case is an absolute must so offer to win as you will be thrilled.
If you win an item from one of my sales you can expect quick and professional emails and a tracking number supplied directly after shipping which will take place within 48 hours after receipt of payment. Your item will be shipped through USPS Priority Mail fully insured.
