Genuine period Qing Dynasty copper/brass Opium box with two very attractive high relief Foo Lions on the cover. Shows signs of usage over time and tiny fissure on one edge of the cover, but it closes and seals perfectly. Chinese character marking on bottom. Size: H. 3.5 cm x W. 4 cm. x D. 1.9 cm. Unique for the box collector! The top is so beautiful it could be used to create a stunning jewelry pendant surrounded for example with brilliants.
