A true and delightful 19th C. Chinese small dragon box. Three yellow four toed dragons adorn this unique box against a background of the most vibrant blue enamel that I have ever encountered, every detail is artistically executed to a high level of craftsmanship, the dragons do not look like the common cartoon type often encountered in late 19th C. examples. The box is small and measures 2" x 1.75" and the micro designs are razor sharp and well defined, simply and utterly beautiful, and very rare to find in this size.
