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.
