Description

A deeply repousse copper lidded box with designs of mountains, clouds, and two four-claw dragons with a flaming pearl in-between. In the center of the lid is a nice deeply carved, hand polished jade with trigram marks and a shou character in the center. The jade looks white because of a large white cloudiness on one side. There are 22 turquoise cabochons circling the jade. The lid and box make a rattling sound when moved, most likely from reliquaries inside. The flaming pearls and dragon heads fit together from lid to box.
The box is unmarked.

A wonderful handmade box with age and artistry that would grace a home or collection. I love the jade on the lid and how it rattles when moved.
