An early 20th century paktong ink box made by the famous shop Tong Gu Tang. The metal, the shaping of the box, as well as the engraving techniques, exemplify the highest standards for ink box industry in the early 20 century. It becomes more and more difficult to find examples by Tong Gu Tang. Length of the box is 9.3cm. The condition is pristine, except that there was originally an inscription to the left of the engraving, which was intentionally rubbed away, probably to protect people's identity during cultural revolution. While most ink boxes are cheap, the listed price reflects the quality and the manufacturer of this box.
