Very pretty Japanese export lacquered jewelry box. Lovely fine design, of foliage and bird, hand painted in gold on the top. I believe it dates from early 20th century. It has a working lock and an associated key.
Inside there is a tray with compartments.
The box is in very good condition for its age, with only a small bit of damage to the lacquer along the bottom edge of the sides, a little on the base (underside of the box) and a few very tiny indentations here and there. The design on the top is still very striking and has not been rubbed.
Please examine the photographs 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.
The box measures 7.5 inches (19 cm) x 5.75 inches (14.5cm) x 3.25 inches (8cm) high.
