A wooden box deeply carved with two squirrels frolicking among grape vines laden with fruit. The eyes of the hapless creatures have been inlayed with blackwood, otherwise it is all from one piece of wood with a light wiped on lacquer finish. The box is 14 x 10 x 6.5 cm (5-1/2 x 4 x 2-1/2 inches). There is a portion of the inner lip which has been chipped away (which of course cannot be seen from outside), otherwise the box is in excellent condition.
