Chinese Export Brass-bound and Paint-decorated Leather and Camphorwood Box, 19th century, the exterior painted with nautical scenes, the interior inscribed "Capt. Brooks," ht. 13, wd. 29, dp. 15 1/4 in. Estimate $200-250
painting appears to be contemporary to the box, likely late 19th century or so. The painted decorated to the right and left side underneath the handles appears to be a later addition.
