Offered here is a nice and rare large vintage Chinese carved red cinnabar jewelry box or trunk. Hand carved pattern, flowers and bird. After the cinnabar was carved, the maker applied lacquer that made the cinnabar a little hard to identify.
I checked with magnifier and there are clear layer lines. It is hand carved cinnabar for sure, on wood base. Conditions: excellent, no damage found. Size: unusally large, 22" x 12" x 10.
