A Pair of Barrel Boxes

A lovely pair of Chinese export barrel boxes. Decorated in the rose medallion palette, each barrel has raised points as well. Both pieces show a bit of use but are in excellent condition.While the exact nature of the art is not the same, the form, style, color, and hand appear to be so. While exact pairs were made so were pairings. Most likely these two were part of a larger group of boxes that could have been sold together or separately. Both are in outstanding condition. The larger one is 4.5″ tall and 3.75″ in diameter. The smaller one is 3.5″ tall and 3″ in diameter. Chinese. Circa 1890.

Price: $325 for both
