Antique Chinese Cantonese Region Carved Hardwood Card Case - People in Garden (Code 1115)
A 19th century Chinese carved hardwood card case. It is finely carved with figures in a garden and the scene repeats on each side. The lid is ambidextrous with the pattern matching either way. These were produced in the Cantonese region around 1870 or so and carved from fine grained wood to allow a high level of detail. This example has a good standard of carving and high level of detail as you can see in the images.
Good for period, minor shining to high points. Minor shrinkage splits to lid corners. Lid fits nice and tightly, a good example.
