This late 19th century miniature tapered keepsake cabinet would have been kept in a woman's quarters, likely as a jewelry chest. Wonderfully feminine butterfly hardware dominates the front panels, symbolizing love and longevity. The gilt painted panels are framed with lacquer embedded with chips of mica, a turn of the century technique practiced by artists in Fujian province where this was made.
