This lovely antique Japanese brass box is enhanced with raised menuki style decorative elements. Most of the detailed applied elements feature birds in various settings - on branches of flowers, eyeing a pomegranate, a stork among the leaves, a kingfisher on a branch, flying toward a basket.
The box measures approx 3" wide x 2-1/2" deep x 1-1/2" high. The lid is hinged. Unmarked.
Condition: it has not been polished and shows tarnish, spotting, and verdigris; the edge of the front of the lid is bent a bit.
