Beautiful lacquered Japanese box with a tray and drawers beneath. Dating from late 19th century. It has a working lock and sweet little key.
The lacquer has a textured feel to it and there is a very lovely raised picture of flowers and a delicate butterfly on the top .
The real silk padding has been added to the interior.
The box is in very good condition. It is good quality and has a heavy feel to it. The colour on the sides has worn somewhat and I believe the gold flecking would have originally been more obvious, with only a few little specks visible now. Overall this is a lovely antique box that looks very attractive on display.
I have included lots of photographs so please examine these to help you make your assessment of the box’s appearance and condition, and if you need further photographs or information please do not hesitate to contact me.
It measures 10.75 inches (27cm) x 4.25 inches (10.5cm) x 3.5 inches (8.5cm) high.
