These are are charming and fine pair of Chinese Mother of Pearl Qianlong yu wan period boxes in the form of a pair of Quails, a male and a female. They both have inlaid Mother of Pearl seal marks to the base. They were possibly used for the storage of incense. The workmanship is very fine and they display beautifully. I would like to point out that the colours are more iridescent than the photos suggest (my photography is not the best). The condition is good with one lid possibly having had some historic restoration but this doesn't greatly effect and is mentioned for accuracy. All in all a fabulous and rare pair of Chinese boxes, ready to display.
Please study the pictures provided carefully, as they are an important part of the description.
