About this item

This quaint little box dating back to the Shanxi province circa 1860, would have been used to store valuables, with the owner using it as a pillow whilst sleeping to keep items safe from potential thieves.
The curved top was designed to provide support for the neck and the old brass clasp to lock the box.

The black finish has worn over time and the paintings faded, however you can still make out the flowers and red coloured pheonix.

A lovely accessory bringing Chinese history into the modern home.
