This Chinese Export or English Chinoiserie lacquered box measures about 7 inches by 5 3/4 inches by 1 3/4 inches.
It dates from the late 18th-middle 19th century.
It is hand painted with a scene of eight figures in a pagoda and garden landscape. The figures are painted in gold over a black lacquer and wood base.
It is in very good condition except for a few very minor cracks and small losses to the lacquer.
