Hello everyone. In the middle of moving to a new house lately, I haven't been around as much. I still like to say hi. This is a nice box, but nothing to write home about. I believe these were sold to tourists as souvenirs in China during the mid 1900's. I have seen others online, much more elaborate than mine here, and they are pretty common.

I do, however, like this box. It is very very heavy, made from a hard solid wood, no sure which wood yet. The drawers are lined with red silk. The handles and ornaments are brass. Nothing is missing, very nice condition, most likely will keep and use.
