Quality Antique Chinese Deeply Carved Cinnabar Lacquer Box With Hardwood Stand:
For sale we have here a quality antique Chinese deeply carved cinnabar lacquer box and hardwood stand in a nice dark reddish brown color tone executed in a foliate design. This lacquer box was produced in China around the first quarter of the c1900s for the export market and is carved to both sides equally being saturated with various sizes of chrysanthemum flower heads, stems, leaves and branches. The workmanship and details are of a very high standard showing even the smallest veins in the leaves and flower petals with both sections having a bold boarder separating the main top from the side carving. The cinnabar has been applied in many coats to achieve this kind of depth and has been laid upon a thin metal box with bronze lippings while the inside of each half is done in the traditional black lacquer. The box rests on a nicely carved and pierced hardwood stand with turned up key style feet and panels of fine scrolls surrounding a flower. Condition of box is excellent with no faults what so ever to the cinnabar and the inside does show some minor pitting and light wear and the stand is also excellent with a good reddish brown coloring. Sizes: Box Diameter 4-7/8" x Height 2-1/2" x On Stand Height 6-5/8". A wonderful antique cinnabar box for the collector.
