This is a very pretty old lacquered paper maché oval shaped trinket or embroidery box. It is done in soft shades of green. It is decorated in the center with old fashioned style flowers and leaves. The outer rim is decorated with green swags highlighted with gold lines. The side of the box is a lighter green or a yellowish green. It is decorated with small white flowers. The bottom is stamped Made in Japan in red ink. There also some other faded marks that look as though they may be Japanese characters.
It measures approximately 8" long, 6 ¼" wide and 2 ¼" high.
The condition is good. There is some wear on the box and the inside has some staining.
