I adore this exquisite handpainted black lacquer writing box, probably dating from the mid-1800s. The floral detail, slightly timeworn and faded is so beautiful. The box was probably used as a travel writing box. It is missing its key. It does have some wear and tear and parts of the paint fading which is commensurate with age but what a gorgeous piece.
30cm length x 22cm depth x 22cm wide (slopes)
A beautiful piece for a living room or bedroom. Place it on the coffee table as a decorative piece and store precious letters inside. Or keep on your dressing table and store your jewellery.
