Fine 19c Chinese Carved Cinnabar Lacquer Gourd Shaped Box W High Relief Details:
For your consideration we have here a fine late 19c Chinese deeply carved cinnabar lacquer box in a gourd shape with wonderful worked high relief details. This box was produced in Canton, China where most all the cinnabar work took place during the Qing period around c1890 or there abouts for the export market. This exceptional antique lacquer box is in the shape of a gourd complete with the top half being shaped to resemble one and the designs of the carved lacquer work include grape vines twisting around with large grape clusters, flowers, leaves and what they call tree rats or squirrels amoungst thefoliage. The workmanship is of a high quality with sharp defined edges and fine details with the inside being done in the traditional black lacquer as well as the underneath making this box a very special find as I have only seen a few of this type over the many years of buying quality cinnabar pieces. Condition is excellent with no cracks, chips, losses or repairs only that there may have been some retouching through the years to the black lacquer otherwise atrulywonderful object. Sizes: Length 5-1/2" x Depth 3-7/8" x Height 3". If you collect Chinese cinnabar objects or antique boxes then this is a real must have for the collector.
