This is a Beautiful and Old Asian Jewelry Chest in Black Lacquer on Wood with Mother of Pearl Designs. There are Trees with Leaves, People on a Bridge, a Pagoda, and Mountains in Mother of Pearl. The Top and Sides are Decorated, as well. I am not knowledgeable enough in Asian items to know whether this is Japanese or Chinese. The Jewel Box has 4 Rows of Drawers; the Top row has 2 small drawers, with fan or bell shaped pulls; and the other rows each have one drawer with round pulls. The Drawers are lined with a Dark Red Velvet type of fabric.
It measures 10 1/4" high x 7 1/4" across and 4 3/4" deep. It is in Very Good Vintage Condition, with a little wear to lacquer, as to be expected with an older piece of this fragile nature. The 2nd drawer from top shows some wear showing wood at the top of Drawer. This is a Beautiful Jewel Chest to hold your treasures. It would also make a Lovely Dresser for your Dolls.
