A unique alloy metal QING Opium Box. The box is of double construction, the outside one sliding off to reveal the hidden inside container with an erotic scene. Excellent craftsmanship with a lion protruding at the top through an exact cutout when the 2 boxes are closed/together. Good condition. Obviously a rare collector's piece! 19th Century, China.
