Elegant Japanese Cloisonne Cigar Box

An elaborate design of fan-like reliefs on the softly domed top of this superb cloisonne box depicts a blue bird resting on a lily and a butterfly about to taste the nectar of a flower, this latter relief with a ground of deep green sparked with "goldstone." Brocade patterns (nishiki-de) decorate the sides. An old label is still inside the lid. Late Nineteenth Century, Japan, 4-3/4 inches by 3-5/8 inches by two inches high.
