CONDITION
The wood shows slight wear but looks very rich. The wood base has shrunk a bit and so it’s possible to see light along the joint when held up to a light.

A wood box that serves as a wonderful instrument to show off the lovely pale green jade plaque. The box is also a good place for little treasures.
