Chinese Antique Covered Box With Carved Handle
Rectangular box, possibly formerly used as a lunch box or as a tool box. Tall carrying handle is carved in a triple-arch design at the top and floral pattern where it connects to the box. The finish is a worn black painted patina.
The Chinese designed an elaborate array of wooden and woven baskets, boxes, and buckets to carry and store things. Some were styled around specific uses--picnics, carrying fish, rice, or water. Some were used for special occasions like carrying "sweets" to a wedding party or a Chinese New Year celebration.
Today, many seem whimsical but always make a great accessory. Use them to hold your keys and mail, magazines, and hand-towels.
