Shown is a beautiful Late Edo/Early Meiji Period Lacquer Storage Box. The Makie gold lacquer is in excellent condition and features scrolling vines, leaves and florals on a very dark black brown base lacquer. The box is futher detailed by black lacquered legs ending in chased brass hooves. The legs are fittted with holes which would have held a silk cord that originally was used to secure the lid and carry the box. All elements of the box are finely detailed. There a minor loss to an underside support and there is an inside (only) minor crack to the lid.** All of the original highly chased brass elements are present, with the exception of one diamond fitting on one leg (see photos No. 3), and in good condition. Please use the contact link on this page to request trade pricing or additional information regarding this gorgeous example of Japanese lacquer, a true work of art. Thanks for visiting.

**Please note: there is a flaw in the first photo of the lid at the bottom left. The actual lid is in perfect condition.
