This pair of early Qing dynasty Shanxi province black lacquer food containers is beautifully decorated with polychrome painted landscape scenes. Made from a poplar wood core, these boxes were originally used as food containers for picnics or outdoor events, a typical part of Shanxi lifestyle. The black lacquer is decorated with finely painted landscape scenes. The top of each box is decorated with a beautiful landscape scene centred around a lake with hills, pavilions, pagodas and various people on boats, studying and riding horses. The long sides are equally decorated with landscape scenes whilst the short sides are decorated with floral scenes. 18th Century
