Mirror Fronted Jewellery Box
Jiangsu, circa 1920
Crafted in Jiangsu province, between the cities of Shanghai and Suzhou, these foldable wooden boxes incorporate a reflective mirror inside that can be conveniently angled upwards. The interiors have two shallow drawers that provided storage for the cosmetics and jewellery of the high ranking women who originally owned them. The boxes are also detailed on the front with a small, inset mirror, while handles on the top were designed for easy transportation. Retaining their original character, the boxes remain exquisite jewellery or gift boxes today.
Sold individually, the price shown is for one box.
