This beautiful small ivory box comes from the Chinese city of Shandong and was probably used by the Scholar for multiple purposes,it is of flattened circular form incised around the cover and bottom with two narrow circles,around the body and on the bottom are many Chinese characters that must of had a very personal meaning to its owner. Circa:Qing Dynasty,18thC/19thC. Condition: Perfect with some normal wear due to usage. Size:1"highx2"Dia. A wonderful piece of old Chinese ivory that will have meaning to its new owner.
