Dates mid to late 1800's. This antique Japanese Lacquer box set features a single large box that has detailed raised-relief scene of a crane perched on a pine limb. Inside the large box is five small shaped lidded boxes that feature a raised-relief of swimming carp, and various foliage.
Condition good. Wear consistent with age and use. Outside box has more wear, looks as a glass had set on the box at one time since there is a light round ring spot next to crane. Inside boxes are almost perfect.
Large box measures 6 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 2". The inside boxes measure approximately 3" x 1 3/4" x 1 1/3".
