A charming gold lacquer box of square form with rounded corners and envelope lid, Its body with red lacquer and a mesh design under a foliate medallion of hiramaki-e peonies and leafy vines on a dense nashiji ground. Inside, a fitted tray of roiro lacquer holds miniature doll accessories including various-sized boxes of both circular and square form embellished with nashiji and images of Buddhist drums. This unusual lacquer box, part of girl’s day festivities, shows minor signs of wear to the lacquer and a few of the doll-sized box lids are missing. Condition commensurate with age and use. Nonetheless, the beauty, rarity and provenance make this gold lacquer box specially desirable for a serious collector. Provenance: Greenfield Collection. Length: 3.25”, width: 2.5”, depth: 2.5” 19th Century, Japan
