Lot 765 (The Asian Works of Art Auction, 20th January 2021)
Sold for £130
The woven sides are in good condition, with only minor surface scratches.
The lacquer has several small areas of loss. Please see the additional images uploaded.
Two of the lid corners are imperfect though losses are minor. The metal lid section has light scratches overall though heavier scratches above the duck's head and while this looks like 'writing' there is no sign of characters, only scratches.
