Chinese Nesting Boxes. Holland: Eddy Taytelbaum, ca. 1950. Pair of nesting wooden boxes with copper emblems and trim. The copper emblems were cut by hand, and carefully shaped, one to a likeness of the Buddha, the other a Chinese character. Larger red box 3 ½ x 2 ¼ x 3”, smaller black box 2 ¾ x 1 ½ x 2 ¼”. Minor wear to paint and copper; very good. The nesting boxes represent some of the first items Taytelbaum constructed in earnest, produced when he first moved to Holland. The emblems featured here appear on many of his later products, such as the Pagodas and Ring Boxes.
