Our Price: £245.00
Description

Superb deeply carved Chinese Sandalwood box decorated all over with many figures/elders in village scenes, eating, discussing matters of importance etc in landscapes surrounded by trees, leaves, floral sprays and pagodas. The quality of deep hand carving is exceptional as the craftsman has masterfully hollowed out the back of some figures and trees to quite some depth.
 
There is a very small piece of carving missing from the front right and one of the carved raised hinge areas at the rear but it still displays beautifully.
 
The rest of the carving is in excellent condition and the beautifully carved hardwood box enjoys a wonderful aged patina.
 
There is no key and the lid has been left detached and both hinges need re-fixing and these have been left loose in the box
 
N.B. The photographs do not do this item justice as it is difficult to obtain a good enough overall photo that shows the excellence of this piece and the deep carving.
