Scope and content

This object is a rectangular jewelry box. The box is made of a wood and has both a lid and base that are hollowed out. The wood in the lid is a light brown and in the container piece dark brown although neither has a finish on them. The lid is separate from the base as the iron hinge that used to hold the two together is broken. The top of the lid is covered in a red lacquer which has a square swirl design on the outside edge and a floral design on the lid. The flowers are fairly large with leaves surrounding them. In the center there is a removable circle semi-clear jade that appears to have a bird and leaf pattern carved into it also. The lacquer is quite fragile and pieces are flaking off of it. The base of the jewelry box is also covered around the edges in a red lacquer square swirl design which is quite textured. This base also has pieces of the lacquer which are chipping and breaking off. The bottom of the jewelry box has been painted black but the paint is crackled and chipping. Inside the box is a small cream colored note with black words that says "Red Laquer Box with Jade Medallion Inlaid in Lid".
