Charming hexagonal small box, probably dating from the late XIXth to the early XXth century. It is decorated on the top with a 16-petal chrysanthemum (the imperial symbol) in gold takamakie and on the sides with flying cranes in mother-of-pearl inlay, the contour of the cranes and the box finely outlined in gold makie.
The object is in good condition , with some age-related wear and cracks to the lacquer on the edges. Please, refer to the pictures.
