This is a very fine and large Japanese Cloisonne Hinged Box and Cover. Wonderful scenic design on lid with geometric design around all 4 sides. Lid is worked in very thin silver wires. This early box is unsigned and is very heavy and has Sosuke weight. It weighs slightly over 6 lbs. and is approx. 8 1/2" x 7 1/4" x 4 1/4" tall. There is an opening in the front panel for a key in which to lock the box if you prefer. Key is missing. Condition is excellent but for some pitting/enamel pops that are common for this period of work. Brass rims have some nicks and scratches. No chips, cracks or restoration.
