Beautiful old box, black lacquer ware with inlay of mother of pearl including two figures, trees , flowers and geometric designs. Unmarked as to country, best bet is China. It measures 4.25" by 3.5" and is 2" tall. Structurally sound, but missing inlay some on the top as part of the tree, inlay on the sides seems to be all present. There are chips on the edges where the lid meets and one tiny corner on the base. Chip on two corners of the top, and a larger missing lacquer on the inside of the lid. We usually don't list items with damage, but this box is very old and these are not easy to find in any condition, and we consider it to still be quite lovely. Please examine all photos.
