A pretty vintage dresser box or powder box, decorated with Japanese characters and raised moriage designs. Very colorful work - it even has applied gold! So many dresser boxes out if Japan years ago tried to look European, but this one is distinctly Japanese and I think better for it - and far more interesting! Measures 2 1/2" tall and about 4 1/2" in diameter. Very cool! Circa 1900 to 1930.
