Before any images can be applied up to 16 coats of lacquer will have been applied to the Teak frame of this box. Gold gilt is then applied followed, over a series of weeks , with each area where a specific colour is required being carved, by hand. As each area is carved and colour applied the images on the Box, of traditional village life, will have become apparent. Completion of the box is extremely labour intensive.

This lacquerware box dates from the late 19th century and would have been used to hold religious Buddhist scrolls. As each box is hand carved it is also completely unique.

For it's age the piece is in remarkably good condition. However, some 'chipping' can be seen on the corners of the box - as shown in the photographs.

Material: Lacquerware Dimensions (HxWxD): 24cm x 64cm x 24cm
