IMPORTANT Marked ANTIQUE Chinese 22K GOLD
& STERLING Silver ENAMEL Snuff or OPIUM BoxI apologize for having to relist this item. Because of a buyer's request, I took the piece to a jeweler
to be tested for metal content. I was pleased to hear that the piece is Sterling grade silver with a
thick overlay of over 22K Gold. Please offer accordingly. A kind friend gave me a translation of the
characters, saying: the characters on the box are 2 sentences quoted from an old poem, the
meaning - young married woman takes a flower and asks her husband who is more charming,
she or the flower... in chinese pinyin"ZheLai (take or pick)DuiJing (in front of the mirror)
Bi(compare to)HongZhuang (her beauty),Wen (ask)Lang (husband) HuaHao (flower
beautiful) Nu (I) Yan (looking) Hao (beautiful)" (Thank you Andrew!) Please see the other antique Chinese enamel pieces I have for sale this week.
This item is another piece from my personal collection of 25 years. It is an extraordinary
piece with excellent color and craftsmanship in carved and chased metalwork as well as enamel
work. There is a character mark on the bottom. I do not know what the content of the metal is,
it appears to be gilding over silver. The top fits very tightly on the box. There are minor losses to
enamel. I may be selling others of this quality in the coming weeks. Please study all of the photos,
as I have taken pictures from almost every angle. Please ask if you need to see more.
The item measures approx 1 7/8 x 1 1/2 x 7/8".Payment is required within 5 days please! Ask questions before offerding please!

I am slowly selling off some of my Chinese antiques and jewelry that I have been accumulating
for 25 years. Please check on my items often. I have been on a selling hiatus for several
months, and will be selling on a more regular schedule from now until the summer.
Please check my listings regularly for more wonderful items.

I will try my hardest to ship your item within 3 days of cleared payment.
I work full time and my selling is something that I do on the side.
I would appreciate if you would not give me a negative rating on shipping time because of this.
