Description

An incredibly-detailed gold lacquer box crafted by an experienced artist that still shines today.
A thin wood box and lid has been coated in gold lacquer with tiny accents of black and mother of pearl. I love how the artist has used mother of pearl or fish scales in the peacock feathers that gives a subtle glitter when viewed. The painting is very minute, and the workmanship is so very fine. The box lid fits the box snugly.
