In 2004 we visited Beijing. I was able to shop at some of the early morning local markets... This one is a hand painted leather box with wood interior. The woman who sold it to me was so passionate to show me it's indestructible that at one point, she placed it on the ground and basically jumped on it... And nothing happened to the box... I am almost positive it is not a modern piece... I have several of those and this just doesn't look or feel like the modern pieces... But I am not sure.

I do love this piece and it will stay around for a long time.

    Dr. Fluffy, How much did she weigh? lol. I love collecting different old boxes. Most of mine are wood. This is a special one, and it is awesome to know that you personally bought it in China! Great story behind your purchase. I have a very small box that looks like it is a bookcase with books in it. My mother gave it to me. She said it belonged to her young brother and it has a false bottom in it. My mom said he used to keep his stash in it! He passed away in the 70's, and it has a lot of special meaning for me, because he lived with us for a while when I was a young fellow! Talk to you later, did not mean to talk so much. Thrifty
