PAST COLLECTION ITEM
Pair of antique Oriental wooden jewelry boxes with carved artwork
This is a pair of antique wooden jewelry chests, likely from the 1940's. It is either of Japanese or Chinese origin. The large box has a music movement and plays a delightful tune (wind up on the back) when the main lid is opened. The dimensions of the large box are about 17"x9"x9" when closed, and opens to about 27"x17"x9". The smaller matching jewelry box is about 12"x7"x5" in size and it does not have a music movement. The inside of the boxes have red velvet lining. The wood seems to be teak and there are nice carvings of dragons, pagodas, trees, etc. on the fronts and tops.
