A large Chinese cloisonné covered box formed as a cart drawn by a powerful ox. In opulent, baroque-style, its opaque enamels in iron red, pink, black and white are contained by heavily gilt wires with stylized decorations embedded in its turquoise-enameled ground. Rich in symbolism, archaic dragons, phoenix, lotus and jeweled necklaces cover the entire piece. This whimsical sculpture obviously has been used, the interior of the cart, detachable from the ox, showing slight signs of age. This set is in very good condition with no dents, cracks or restoration. Length: 19" Early to mid 20th Century, China
