FANTASTIC CHINESE JADE TOPPED ROSEWOOD BOX. THE BOX IS IN NICE CONDITION WITH ALITTLE SEPARATION ON ONE OF THE MITERS ON THE LID SO SLIGHT, YOU CAN BARELY SLIP A PIECE OF PAPER IN THE CRACK. ALL THE GRAIN IS MATCHED. THIS MEANS THE BOX WAS MADE FROM ONE PIECE OF WOOD. ALSO ,WHEN THE LID IS FITTED TO THE BOX THE GRAIN LINES UP. THE LID IS VERY SLIGHTLY WARPED SO THE BACK EDGE RIDES UP JUST A LITTLE BIT, WHICH I HAVE SHOWN IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS. WHEN YOU TURN THE LID OVER THERE IS A RECTANGULAR RECESS THAT HAS BEEN HAND CUT.YOU CAN ALSO SEE WHERE THE BOTTOM OF THE LID HAS SHRUNK A BIT, LEAVING A SMALL SPACE THAT CAN BE SEENON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE LID ONLY. THE JOINTERY ON THIS BOX IS QUITE COMPLICATED WITH A COMBINATION OF MITRE JOINTS AND A TYPE OF KEYED BOX JOINT. ALSO, THE BOTTOM OF THE BOX SHOWS SOME CRACKS FROM CONTRACTION AS WELL. NOW THAT SHOULD COVER ALL THE FLAWS I HAVE SEEN IN THIS VERY SPECIAL, HAND CRAFTED BOX. THE JADE CARVING IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION WITH NO LOSS NOTED. PLEASE TAKE TIME TO LOOK AT THE OPEN WORK AND THE WAY IT WAS CARVED IN LEVELS. VINES AND FOLIAGE LAY A BACKDROP FOR THE UPPER PART OF THE CARVING GIVING WAY TO FLOWER, A LOTUS IN THE CENTER AND TWO BIRDS BELOW IT. THE JADE HAS NO BREAKS OR REPAIRS.I CAN SEE TWO NATURAL INCLUSIONS. ONE AT THE TOP OF THE PANEL, AND ONE ON THE LEFT. THESE ARE NOT CRACKS OR BREAKS. MEASURES 4 1/8 INCHES WIDEBY 3 3/4 INCHES DEEP AND 3 1/2 INCHES TALL.
