Chinese Bride's Jewel Box A


China
#A-62
Ancient Chinese tradition has always associated red with luck and good fortune. Naturally things connected with weddings should be as auspicious as possible, and jewelry boxes for a bride are usually red. This early 1900's bridal jewelry box has a pierced stand for a mirror on top, with motifs of a Taoist immortal riding a fantastical beast and phoenixes – all lucky symbols that have long been part of Chinese culture.

box: 11 1/2" width, 11 1/2" depth, 6 1/4" height
total height: 20 1/2"
