Ann old Chinese cinnabar lacquered and carved jewelry box. We love the figural and natural carved images as well as the cloisonné front latch.
The interior is turquoise, likely silk and is a dramatic contrast to the red exterior.
Age unknown. We did the recommended q tip and nail polish remover test on a small edge/corner and the color did darken the q-tip, hence making this piece real cinnabar.
Minor surface wear. The q-tip test left no surface mark.
