Description

Antique Chinese figural three tier rectangular wedding box with rattan sides and intricately carved Rosewood side handles.

These festive Chinese stacking boxes are used for carrying food during the wedding procession of the bride. Usually there are two sets of boxes to balance each on the end of the pole. The tradition of Chinese wedding boxes goes back 1,000 years. Before the ceremony, the bride’s family would conspicuously display the boxes. Before the Yuan Dynasty, the wooden boxes were painted and decorated with lacquer. After 1279, the boxes were often painted leather. As time passed, the boxes became increasingly more ornate.
