This silver and enamel opium box has Chinese poetry enameled on the sides. Around the box it reads, “Abode of the mountain resting on a cloud / A fresh rain passed over this lonely mountain, and the weather toward evening changed into autumn / Through repose become non-desiring: thus to grow no old is the way of Taoist Immortals. Written in kui-wei.” (kui-wei indicates the date). Object: Feng Hua, Opium Box, 1883, silver and enamel.
