home - references - A selection of lacquer boxes - BOX SIX

A superb octagonal box. Domed lid, with central gilded scene of a family group on a terrace with views of pagodas and distant lakes. A beautiful box, on four claw feet, which displays very well indeed. Take off the lid to reveal seven interior boxes, four of them shaped and three oblong; all with crisply gilded scenes of a family on a terrace; several include children. All in super condition. A full set of twelve 'Pope Joan' trays: three counter trays with rural scenes; Ace, King, Queen, Jack, ten and nine of diamonds plus 'game'; matrimony (King and Queen) and 'intrigue' (Queen and Jack). The trays show some wear to the gilding.
