19th Century Japanese Paper Mache Letter Holder

I would think that this would have been made for the European market in the late 1800's but it could be a lot earlier, or of course a little later. It is a fabulous thing and although there is some small damage as per pics, and some colour fading to the gorgeous art work, it is still a very lovely piece. Measures 9 1/2" in width and 9" in height. The wear around the hole from where it has been hung on a wall also demonstrates the considerable use and age of this item.
