Over two centuries ago, this charming red lacquer box sat on the table of a Qing Dynasty home filled with popular snacks: roasted melon seeds, dried fruit, soy beans toasted with cinnamon, fennel, and other spices. It was made in China’s Shanxi Province by an artisan with an eye for detail. The top is decorated with finely painted scholars' objects and the sides with an intricate honeycomb pattern. The interior of this box houses fifteen removable trays.
