Three Empires
A chinese lacquer box incised with budhist emblems to the sides and lotus to the top. It has a carved giltwood central plaque to the lid. The interior and base are lacquered black.

Probably dating from the late C19th., it measures 22.5x22.5x9.5 cms.

There are some minor chips to the edges which reveal part of the construction which appears to be a wood carcass covered in hesian and a gesso. It is in overall very good condition.
