An elegant iron and gilt stepped chest on four bracketed feet and with two delicately reticulated clasps. Intricate damascene work of birds mid blossoming sakura, wild chrysanthemums, and bamboo decorate the lid and side panels. Inside, in gold wash, a stunning surprise of finely incised scenes of blossoming trees and bamboo stalks adorn the compartments. This box is in the Komai style with Fuji mark on the base. The box is in excellent condition with no problems or restoration. Meiji/Taisho, Japan
