About this item

This delightful old wooden pillow box originates from Shanxi province, circa 1860. Traditionally boxes like this were commonly used in China to deter would-be thieves where the owner would use it as a pillow, hence the concave top.
Its original dark lacquer has faded and worn over time and markings of the original clasp are still visible and a replacement simple brass clasp has been added at a later date.

A lovely accessory bringing a taste of the Orient and history into your home.
