      my father always said boy keep your mouth shut, then you never get in trouble, and later he asked me why did you do it , i am beyond repair repair Pa

      so lets give it a try,, although it is too difficult to me

      Actually Truth or Dare is the far better expert

      chasing the flaming pearl design

      the stylised pearl probably narrows it down from early guanghu to mid republic period

      cloud design - rather well cross hatch and dots skin of the dragon
      mocca rim

      equivalent on chinese porcelain waves and fire flares ( guangxu period)

      IMO i tend to late Guanghu period in stead of Republic period

      so i take the easy way out late Guangxu

      quality better then mediocre, is it an humidor , i don,t know probably not

      best Regards Waki and - pas op de Hibiscus ( = don,t jump on the Hibiscus) the name of my cat

      Thanks apostada, I think I am seeing a timeline between 1916 and 1949. a near average piece maybe late Guangzhou period 1925? Is it a humidor? It could be. It has a wooden interior panels very well fit but no smells or sign of tobacco. It is 7 3/8" x 4 1/2" x 3" so it could accommodate cigars and there are no dividers for change or lining for jewelry. I am seeing some other similar dragons chasing this flaming pearl . Thanks and any thoughts on this other box?
