ARMORIAL GAMES BOX WITH 65 COUNTERS (L4)             £ 3750
 This is a rare Chinese  lacquer gaming box with 65 matching counters. The box is heavily gilded and has the monogram C plus family crest of a demi-phoenix/eagle displayed issuing from a coronet with a church on its breast. Inside there are five lacquered boxes, all with the crest and monogram and heavily gilded.  There are six deep counter-trays and four longer trays decorated with cards for the game of Pope Joan. There are 21 round counters, 7 'squares' and 37 long-oblongs all with the crest and monogram and very nice character scenes in a roundel to the reverse and well-drawn flowers. The counters were made in around 1810 and the box was presumably made at the same time. The interior is sparkling; there is some damage to the lid as I have shown in the detailed pictures. Please contact me for a more detailed condition report. shipping to the States by DHL included in price. The price to the UK will obviously be reduced. The box measures 15 inches by11.75 by 3.25 high.
