Subject:Old Asian Wood box with false bottom, ID?
Posted By: samd Sun, Mar 15, 2020 IP: 2601:644:c180:23c0:9

This poor old box has seen some abuse, but the painting in and on it is so nice I thought I'd try to find out when and where is might be from. Thank you for your time, in advance!

P.S> the box has a nailed on bottom that has been undone except for 1 nail to reveal a 1.5" deep bottom compartment. I have found only one example of similar floral painting and clasps on one object, but have no idea if that means anything, Kent State University Museum link:
