ANTIQUE JADE BRASS JEWELRY BOX ORIENTAL Description:
ANTIQUE ORIENTAL JEWELRY BOX JADE/BRASS
This auction features the beautifully detailed oriental jewelry box with jade and brass detailing. Because it is very difficult to possess absolute certainty the authenticity of the jade detailing, one should simply appreciate the delicate carving of this jade-like material, but I am unable to state with certainty that the jade is in fact jadeite or nephrite jade.
The wood is most likely Rosewood and the Brass is genuine.
The piece is at least from the early 1940's.
It measures 6 " H and 7 1/4" W. The red silk lined drawers are 1 3/4 "deep. One drawer has three slots committed for rings, and the other features no separate slots. The top and bottom drawers have brass pull detailing.
This same brass detailing is found throughout the piece on the corners, edges, door pulls, and jade inset. I polished up the brass work to ensure it was indeed brass, however, I did not spend the time to make each piece shine.
The hallmark or authenticity of this piece is from Shanghai China. This piece was hand made and is not missing any nails, jade, or brass work. While it does exhibit minor wear due to age, it is an exemplary piece due to it's fine craftsmanship and delicate carvings.
