C. 1840 CHINESE EXPORT ROSE CANTON SQUARE BRUSH BOX
Circa 1840 Chinese Export Rose Canton Brush Box measuring 3 5/8" in height and top square opening is 1 3/4" Square. This wonderful quality box is fresh out of a Main Line Philadelphia Estate. I have seen brush boxes that are rectangular shaped with a place for a comb and brush. But I believe this piece was made for paint brushes. The quality is just Wonderful. Each side is decorated roses and greenery. In addition to the roses, one side has a beetle, side #2 has a beautiful bird with a long tail, side #3 has butterflies and the last side has another bird with a longer tail, a bumble bee or wasp and another beetle. Each side measures 1 3/4" in diameter. This is the first time I have seen this form, and it is absolutely exquisite. This open box is in Perfect Condition and the quality is the best.
