A brilliantly-modeled silver covered box of rectangular form detailed with gold, silver and shibuichi. Its bronze lid is intricately modeled with a strong image of Kwannon, the goddess of mercy, koto in hand, emerging from the clouds upon the back of a writhing dragon. Her magical music , emanating from the strings of the beloved instrument, is legendary for taming the beast. Interiors are lined with lacquered-finished wood. This uniquely configured box is in very good condition with only expected minor wear along the seams commensurate with age and use. Height: 2”, width: 3.5”, length: 5.75” Meiji Period, Japan
