Elegantly executed Japanese Presentation Box within a Presentation Box. The top is made up of a mixed metal scene consisting of waterliles with fish swimming nearby. The box is contained within a beautiful tongue and groove wood box that allows you to see the beautiful box within it. The size of the wood box is 6" X 6" and the round bronze box is 4 3/4". The rope ties that secured the top to the bottom is the box is frayed on one side and missing on the other. The patination on the box is mottled and inconsistent throughout with splotching also found on the sides of the box.(see photos). A wonderful example of a Meji period box.
