A Regency period Chinese export work box. Of superb quality and retaining the original chinoiserie decoration, the lid opens to reveal a complete and fully fitted interior that lifts out. The box also has a pull out drawer that is again fitted with an internal hinged lid. It stands on finely carved and gilded feet. Crucially the decoration is complete and in completely untouched condition.

“This is a superb example of Chinese export chinoiserie and incredibly the interior still retain all the original carved bone sewing paraphernalia."
