Subject:Laquered turtle dragon (bixi ??) box
Posted By: joamuse Tue, Jul 10, 2018 IP: 2601:18f:800:39d8:80

We found this in a local antique shop this weekend. I did not purchase, because I wanted to do more research. The body is in two pieces and it sits on a stand that was made for it originally. It is quite heavy, I can't tell what the base material is, but it feels like there is a lacquer shell. I'd love to know if anyone has any thoughts on origin and what the seal says. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
