This circular box, A:lid, B:bottom, was probably used for the storage of candy, however it also could have been used for jewelry. A is decorated with a bouquet of multicolored flowers, a large pink peony with yellow petals around it, purple, blue, and orange daisy-like flowers, sprays of purple and blue flowers. The lower rim is decorated with scallops of metallic gold. B has the same metallic gold scallops at its top with small sprigs of flowers in different colors painted around its belly. Tiny metallic gold band is painted at the flat foot.
