Napoleon III Chinoiserie Box

Regular price $115.00

One large black lacquered antique Chinoiserie box with a hand painted garden party scene, complete with jovial gymnastics, floral details and a general sense of a good time. Opens with a push clasp to reveal your most precious belongings, like that new pair of earrings or secret snacks for later. Purchased at the Marche aux Puces in Paris and dates back to the 19th century. A little bit of wear to the lacquer and gold is present, but doesn't take away from the beauty.
