Description

A very old oriental hand painted wooden box with cherry blossom and a bird (a pheasant) I believe, on the top and cherry blossoms around the sides.

This beautiful box is dark blue but has some age and there is a dark patina all over making it seem almost black. The bird and cherry blossom painted on the front are raised which gives this box a luxury feel. It measures approx. 15cm x 10cm x 6.5cm.

The shape, the way the box opens (on the short side) and the design of the liner inside, suggest that this was originally a cigarette box, so probably dates from early last century.

As you can see, the paint has chips and there is a crackle- glaze effect to the outer varnish which add to its vintage charm.

Perfect for storing bedroom or bathroom items in or as a trinket box.
