Absolutely rare and authentic. A museum-quality piece for collectors in the know. In good original condition with some traces of oxidation but without any damage to the work, this Mandarin duck was made in Cambodia in the first part of the 20th century for French colonists... These boxes were used by the local population as lime boxes or make-up boxes

Please take a look at the photos.
Thank you.
