Featuring beautiful antique Japanese black lacquer box with fine gold lacquer fern-like leaves and branches. The design caries over to 3 sides. Inner tray with large lily pad leaf design and matching similar design on interior of cover. The motifs are similar in style to the work of the great Japanese artist,Shibata Zeshin, and could possibly be attributed to him. Sterling mounts on rims of cover and box. Dates from the end of the Edo period to the beginning of the Meiji era, 1850-1870. Dimensions: 8.5" long x 7.25" wide x 3.5" high. Very good to excellent condition. One small dent near bottom edge(see 2 photos) and minor spotting to cover. It would be fairly easy to restore the top spots and the small chip on the foot of the box. No other damages, damage to gold work or any other problems. All original. Please feel free to ask for more photos of undersides, interior etc. Satisfaction guaranteed or money back providing item returned in sent condition within a few days of having been received and the way it was packed. Sales tax charged if sold in NY state unless valid resale number and signed form are received. Please excuse white reflections!A black background should have been used!
