Antique Victorian miniature hand painted lacquered stamp box. Birds and flowers. A gorgeous little box, with painted wood effect and glossy lacquer. To the lid are three chaffinches (or similar), perched on springtime white blossom filled branches. Possibly Chinese for the export market. The lid opens with a nice study feel, with a clever lip at the front that enables the lid to stay closed. The interior is painted red, with three sloping fronted compartments. There are nicks and surface wear as to be expected from a item this age. Dimensions: Width: 90mm Depth: 55mm Height: 25mm Weight: 59g I love this box, one I wanted so much to keep!
