Pretty small Japanese writing box decorated with maple leaves in flat and relief (hira and taka maki-e) on a background of gold powder (nashiji). The decor of maple leaves is Supposed to Represent the fall. The lid and the outside of the box are black lacquer (ro-iro). The water dropper is in silver. Very delicate and highly decorative work. Period: 19th Century Meiji.
