Soft cinnabar laquer over wood box. This Chinese box with bottom mark "CHINA" is from the early part of the 20th Century. It is in as good a shape as you can find. Small indentation to side bottom edge due to the softer cinnabar that this piece was done with. Minorblack paint flake to the bottom. This box is 2 1/2 wide, 4" across and about 1 1/2" tall. A nice piece of hand work that is genuine cinnabar, not the newer harder red plastic.
