Description

A finely carved antique Chinese Tortoiseshell snuff box, the cover carved with figures in a busy Chinese garden scene dating from around 1860. The rounded snuff box has a slightly domed cover with figures sat below a fruit tree in a garden scene with buildings to either side and with a further figure gathering fruit in the background. The scene has a key style border with a repeat flower design around the edge. The base is similarly carved in lower relief with a central blank cartouche with the edge carved in deeper relief with a continuous Chinese village scene.
The box is offered in good condition however has damage or a fault showing to the inside base. This does not impact on the external appearance of the box.
