Late Qing Dynasty (1890s to 1911) Chinese cloisonne covered box for seal paste decorated on the top with several scholar’s objects including ancient vessel, tassels, scrolls, jardiniere with a plant and vase with prunus branch, all surrounded by flowering branches. Wonderful quality work, gilding to all exposed metal parts (some wear to the bottom rim). All irregularities are not losses or repairs, but original features of the item. Very pleasant patina, very appropriate item for scholar’s desk. Height 1 inch, diameter 3 inches.
