Featuring a fine Chinese cloisonne match box holder with a genuine carnelian agate carving inlaid in the center. The unusual rich green background is a great contrasting color to the colorful brass wired lotus scroll patterns and the agate carving which is well carved with an attractive bird, flower and leaf design. Beautiuflly decorated on the back also. Stamped China in the brass dating it circa 1900. This piece is much finer than most from this period, being heavier and with quality workmanship. Excellent condition with no enamel losses, damages or restorations. There are a couple of very minor surface scratches on the revers side only noticed under high magnification. Return privilege providing item returned within 3 days of having received it and in sent condition and original packaging. Postage/insurance extra. Sales tax charged if sold in New York state unless valid tax number and resale certificate supplied.
