- JUST FOR POSITION DO NOT DELETE
Made to temporarily store various types of sweets, this round box is ornate with thick pieces of shell inlaid on a red lacquered ground. The floral-roundel inlays are spread across the lid and include six-petal, seven-petal, and eight-petal flowers in chrysanthemum, sunflower, ruyi scepter, and diamond shapes. The center of the lid features a stylized 'longevity' character (shou) in gold. Inside is a round, red tray with nine surrounding plates. The inside of each plate is embellished with bat designs in gold paint or gold leaf while the center tray is decorated with a golden longevity symbol. The box has a unique, festive charm with its bright colors and unique design.
