This is a lidded wooden box, on a stand, made of what appears to be camphor wood. A hardwood native to Japan.
The carving is EXQUISITE on this piece………the box is carved on the lid and sides and the lid is carved with a frog on a waterlily.
The carving is 3 Dimensional, as the frog and stem of the lily are raised and contoured with the rest of the piece.
The Chinese are famous for their carving…..but in our humble opinion…….NOBODY was better at carving than the Japanese !
The attention to detail, quality and finesse is second to none !
The piece is in 3 parts: (1) The Lid, (2) The Box and (3) the Base.
This piece is part of the Lida Calvert Hall Obenchain/McMillan Collection.
The Figurine was located in the 19th Century Dutch Colonial Home of Lida Calvert Hall-Obenchain located at Armstrong Parkway in Highland Park, Dallas.
Lida Calvert Hall along with her daughter in law Scotta McMillan (daughter of Judge McMillan, a very prominent Waxahachie Family) collected a large number of high quality antiques and in particular French Antiques, by buying from local High-End Antique Dealers and also High-End Local Auctions in the early 20th Century. less
