Asian Lacquered Box

Roll over for video transcriptHighlighting October's Asian antiquities is this lacquered wood box featuring auspicious symbols.  The lid centers a painted longevity medallion, encircled by a highly stylized rendition of a bat upon each of the four corners.  In the Chinese culture, bats symbolize good fortune and happiness; a stark departure from the animal's often dark Western connotations.  The decorative box has the option of being displayed on a matching wood stand and it is also accompanied in the lot by a set of small stacking trays.  The box, with stand, measures approximately 20 3/4 x 20 x 20 inches, to be sold at an auction estimate of $300-500. Join us at Michaan's Auctions on October 5 for a chance to buy Asian lacquered box.
