About this item

This delightful, decorative box originates from Shanxi, circa 1860. Traditionally it would have been given as a birthday gift to a grandchild, with additional gifts to follow each consecutive year to be stored inside it.

Decorated in black and red lacquer with paintings of 'foo dogs' (a symbol of protection) on the front, all of which have now worn over time but add character and charm to this lovely little box. The simple hardware is also original.

Use today an unusual accent piece with useful storage.
