Antique Handmade Wood Money Box with Hardware from 19th Century China
An antique handmade Chinese money box with metal hardware from the 19th century. This rectangular box is made of two-tone wood. The front displays a dark brown bottom drawer that opens via a simple metal ring pull. Above sits a metal handle that doubles as a locking mechanism. Round detail cut outs adorn both the front and the left side while the top features a grated round cut out.
The lid opens on a varnished four-compartmentalized box inside. Metal hardware details reinforce the box edges. This Chinese 19th century handmade wood money box with hardware would be an unusual item in most environments and would be a perfect storage unit in a den for stationary items or perhaps a bedroom for everyday jewelry.
