A very unusual and decorative 19th century Chinese export black lacquer box, decorated with green arabesques within red boarders. The front panel decorated in a very unusual blue and white lacquer depicting a landscape of town houses, people and bridges. The front with later drop handles and brass drop handles fitted to the sides. The interior lined with Chinese paper.

In 20 years of dealing we have not seen any Chinese export objects decorated in this manner in blue and white. It is particularly rare and all the more eye catching for it.
In fair condition, the back has been restored and the drop handles are later replacing a brass plate. A charming decorative relic.
