Catalogue Note

Lacquers by Le Pho are extremely rare and this box is unique being the only piece produced by the artist and also because like many others, the artist was allergic to this material. After the artist produced this box and a lacquer fold-screen, the artist stopped working with lacquer.  

Please note that this lot is accompanied by a copy of a letter from Victor Tardieu's family.
