Antique Chinese Export lacquered tea mother of pearl wooden box trunk XL 1840s. Super hard to find BIG Chinese export tea box. Probably had a tin insert at one time to hold the tea.This is cloth lined on the inside with mother Pearl overlay on the outside. Does have quite a few condition issues that will need some understanding. Hinge and lid work as they should. Has quite a few dents and dings, cracked across lid, and some mother of pearl missing. Box itself is still quite sturdy. This is a functional piece you could store things in it at home. This one seems larger than the other one that I found at 1st dibs. Very difficult to photograph but it's quite beautiful in the right light as the Pearl glistens. Be sure to watch this price will come down. 21 in wide by 15 inches tall by 14 in deep.
