Product Details

  • We have been instructed in the sale of an extensive and choice single owner Oriental collection amassed over many decades and amounting to over 1,000 items spanning the Dynasties with many rare, unusual and interesting pieces. The collection is to be offered without reserve. On offer is this very rare antique Chinese hand carved snuff box modeled as a ladies shoe and dating from the 18th or early 19th century. The shoe is finely carved with excellent attention to detail and with a sliding top which reveals the internal compartment. There are three small cord holes to the back of the shoe two of which attached to the lid which has remnants of cord in the corresponding holes. The shoe has a wonderful age patina and is typically not marked. A rare and quality example!
