A selection of the museum’s Far Eastern lacquer objects is presented, beginning with an approximately 2200 years old Chinese wine container (chih) of lacquered wood. Also shown are Chinese trays, panels, and boxes from the Wan’li and K’ang-hsi periods. Several beautiful carved lacquer objects are dating from the 14th to the 18th centuries. Shown are South Chinese export wares, large ‘Coromandel’ screens, cupboards, and storage boxes, followed by Korean lacquer objects. Finally Japanese boxes and bowls from the 15th and 16th centuries, a Namban export lacquer chest, writing boxes (suzuribako), inro, and incense boxes are shown.
