  Chinese wedding boxes

 

China

A couple of ancient Chinese wedding boxes, used by the families of a nuptial couple to carry wedding gifts. There are two common models, i.e. those with a single container that usually have a decorated handle...

 

... and those with multiple containers placed on top of each other, reminiscent of kheng baskets (fig.), Indian tiffin boxes or the Thai pintoh (fig.).
