A lacquered food box containing 6 dishes. The sides of the lid have 6 windows for ventilation that are barred with iron weaving to keep the flies out. The decoration on the sides show an interlocked grid of hexagons. The top of the lid is decorated with a landscape showing buildings and figures. Shanxi province, late 18th or early 19th C. Price is in euro's Dim.: LxDxH 48x31x18,5cm. As a whole it is in fair condition and a nice example, though there is considerable wear to the lacquer and wear to corners. The filled in figures for example have flaked off completely; they remain as silhouettes. The 6 dishes are a mix and only one appears to be original to this box.
