Late 19th Century Chinese Wedding Gift Basket Red Lacquered + Gold Gilt – a Pair. Original Price: $2,000
Design Plus Gallery presents a Pair of 19th Century Chinese Wedding Gift Baskets in Red Lacquer + Gold Gilt. Stunning detail and attention is applied to every surface of these symbols of love. A vibrant red lacquer sets the stage for the raised panels with figures and chinoiserie. Sculptural details are gold gilt on top of brass for a rich depth. Pair is almost identical but the lower panels vary with the figures and one shows more wear where the gold gilt application use to be applied. Both are in good condition. Lids are difficult to remove as well.
