This is a late 19th Century well-designed and well-cared for three layer "food box". In its conception, each layer should have been to hold food. But over time, given the high quality of the wood, it may have graced a scholar's table and held scholar's implements. All the brass work is either original or very old. Patina is excellent Condition is very good. Only it knows what it did. Late Qing. Measurements following.
