A classic and superb Japanese small sewing chest - the 'hari-bako' (pin or needlebox), crafted from zelkova. The main section of small and large drawers is topped with a compartment with covered pincushion and small drawer. The smaller drawers have metal pull knobs whereas the larger have metal handles. Japanese ladies are said to have hidden small amounts of money in the tiny covered drawers. This is an excellent example of the style, in very good condition and would grace any collection – especially those of Japanese or needlework items. The pincushion and handle appear original. There is some loss to the pincushion fabric. Length 7.75 ins (19.5cm), depth 7.25 ins (18.5cm), height 19 ins (48.5cm). Weight 944 grams. This item can be seen in the book, "Antique Boxes - Inside and Out", on page 333. Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $40.00 USD. This item is covered by own insurance policy.
