Vintage/antique, handmade wood box of collectibles/curios.
This box, found housing some of these curios was bought at an Inuit and Asian art auction.
No provenance given, and age undetermined.
The curios consist of 3 miniature pottery/terracotta plates or bowls, one miniature pottery or terracotta head, miniature pottery/terracotta oil lamp, three stone carvings ('elephant' (8th photo) listed as 'speculative "elephant" temple stone with remnants of red painted decoration'), 2 Chinese soapstone pendants, one vintage/possibly antique Cinnabar brooch (old pin replaced), and one vintage Asian hand painted/etched gourd rattle.
The box shows signs of wear and scratches to the inside lid.
The pottery and stone items show wear, nips, and breakage commensurate with age - one stone carving has a broken foot, repaired neck and chips (see photos).
These are old, and although we have wiped down each with a soft, dry cloth, there may be dust and dirt in crevices.
