A gold-lacquered, covered box of rectangular form rendered in gold and silver lacquers. On the cover’s exterior, with superb definition, a delicate image of tall irises is positioned asymmetrically on the smooth kinji ground. As characteristic of Japanese art, the visual continues on the side of the box. The interiors are executed in rich nashiji lacquer. This exquisite gold-lacquered box is in excellent condition with no loss, damage or restoration; includes storage wood box. Length: 5.25”, width: 4” Taisho Period, Japan
