Antique Accessories

Artifacts, tells the story of daily life in Ming and Qing dynasty and the unique sense of form that makes Chinese antiques compelling and delightful.

Baskets, jewellery boxes, food containers, lunch boxes, birdcage, plates and pots, document boxes, calligraphy brushes, brush pots, rice baskets, there is a rich variety of these smaller items and they speak volumes.

Document boxes designed to double as pillows tell us something of the dangers of travel in China. These boxes let travellers sleep on their valuables. Clever jewellery boxes could open to reveal both a hidden mirror and hidden compartments to store valuables. Leather boxes made to hold a lady's hair ornaments or accessories were often painted with butterfly or scenes of children at playgrounds, or groups of ladies at their leisure.

More than utility, these accessories display wonderful shapes. The wedding baskets with hourglass handles. Rice measures shaped somewhat like a beehive. Necklace boxes in the form of donut. Imaging them on the tabletops. on the floor in the corner of the living room. flanking a sideboard in the dining room, accenting a bookshelf almost anywhere.
