Subject:Shunga Trinket Box
Posted By: Kate Scott-wilding Mon, Mar 04, 2019 IP: 2a00:23c4:b000:2c00:

Please can anyone give me information about this box? I appreciate that the subject matter is a little risqué and the interior decoration rather explicit so I will add the photos of the interior later with permission!
Many thanks

The box is a late-20th century or subsequent effort by an immodest workshop in China or elsewhere in Asia to reap profit off the perceived decadence in Western morals. The motif couldn't possibly be more naïve and lacking in artistic salvation than what's already been shown in the forum countless times by others with less consideration for those of us ancient enough still to be steeped in Victorian values.

Methinks I doth protest too much. :)
