Chinese carved jade and wood jewellery box
Stunning Chinese wood jewellery chest with brass medallion & handle on top. Richly decorated with etched brass and pale green carved jade, it sits on raised feet.
The interior of the box contains four drawers, lined with red silk brocade with gold flowers, some with ring holders, and others for larger items of jewellery. The fifth, exterior drawer has a hidden compartment.
The carrying handle at the top has a mounting of four fruit bats and a shou, which is the symbol of good luck in the centre. The handles on the front are shaped as two artemesia leaves, delicately detailed.
Overall, the box is in beautiful vintage condition, with working lock and key, which is quite rare to find.
