CHINESE EXPORT LACQUER SEWING BOX
GOOD EXAMPLE OF A CHINESE WORKBOX DATING FROM THE MID 19TH CENTURY AND CONSTRUCTED FROM A WOODEN CARCASE ONTO WHICH BLACK LACQUER HAS BEEN APPLIED. THE DECORATION OF LADIES AND GENTLEMEN IN A DOMESTIC LANDSCAPE HAS THEN BEEN ADDED BY HAND IN GOLD LEAF.

THE BOX STANDS ON FOUR VERY DECORATIVE CARVED WOOD FEET DEPICTING MYTHICAL BEASTS WITH FEIRCESOME EXPRESSIONS. (IT IS VERY GOOD THAT THESE FEET HAVE SURVIVED AS THEY ARE OFTEN MISSING FROM SEWING BOXES)

THE SEWING TRAY LIFTS OUT AND THERE IS A DRAWER UNDERNEATH WHICH IS FITTED FOR WRITING. THE SWING HANLDES ARE MADE FROM STEEL.

CONDITION - THE HINGES HAVE BEEN REPLACED, ONE ESCUTCHEON LACKING, KEYS MISSING, MINOR CHIPPING AND SOME AGE CRACKS TO LACQUER. LACQUER A BIT RUBBED IN PLACES THOUGH OVERALL CONDITION REALLY QUITE GOOD FOR LACQUER OF THIS AGE.

WOULD MAKE A GOOD ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION OF CHINESE EXPORT LACQUER OR SEWING BOXES/ACCESSORIES. THERE ARE QUITE A FEW OF THE ORIGINAL CARVED BONE FITTINGS INCLUDED WITH THIS LOVELY BOX
