Beautiful Mid-Century lacquered wood jewelry box from Japan, decorated with hand painted Asian landscape scenes in shades of red and gold with random abalone or mother of pearl insets. It has two pull-out drawers, a raised double lidded box with tasseled pulls, a center compartment, twin covered hinged compartments at either side above the drawers, and a triple mirrored compartment with tasseled and decorated swing-out doors. The music box plays the song Sukiyaki, a 1962 song popular in both Japan and America.
A plastic key was found in one of the drawers but it does not appear to fit the keyhole lock. One of the side compartment covers is loose - it just needs a couple of brad nails or screws for the hinges. There's a little chipping to the lacquered finish at the upper edges of the front drawers on some of the corner edges.
