Antique Food Carrier
Shanxi, circa 1870
This old storage box was originally used by a worker in Shanxi province to carry his food for the day. The old black lacquer finish is now worn and crackled, and though faded still contrasts nicely with the red lacquer on the decorative sides. Particularly nice here are the very fine interlocking dovetail joints at each corner.
