Antique Chinese Eastern Lacquered Mirror Box / Vanity Jewellery Box with Drawers
Superb Eastern hardwood Mirror Box. The wooden box is painted in a red lacquer with further paintings and decorations on the back and side panels. It has ornate brass corner plates, hinges and handles. The lid of the box lifts up to reveal a mirror which drops down and props itself up in the top of the box. Below this are an arrangement of two small and one long drawer, each with a brass drop handle. The plate to one side of a drawer handle is slightly different to the rest so possibly a later replacement but it is certainly in keeping. The box is a nice small size, making it very usable.

The whole piece is in good original condition. It has been cleaned, waxed and the brass has been lightly polished and it displays beautifully. The mirror is undamaged and there are no major damages to the wood. There are some signs of age and use and some areas of paint loss and small chips but nothing detrimental.

The drawers are generally clean and tidy inside and the hinges are strong. It has all its brass pieces and the only thing to note is that one of the internal supports for the large drawer is missing but it still opens and closes well (see photo). The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions please ask.
