The offer here is a rarely available circa. 1950’s-1960’s Old Straits Chinese Peranakan Beautiful & Exquisite, Silver Antique Tobacco Box.
Tobacco/Trinket boxes are among the most conspicuous articles of personal items made for the Peranakan Chinese. They are commonly noted for their ingenuity of design and intricacy of workmanship.
This consists of a beautiful baba Phoenix bird & flowers design. Very typical of the hand-made artisanal Nonya boxes of a bygone era.
A very beautiful and happy piece that will standout proudly in any collection. Rarely available, hard to come by, very few in existence today.
