DESCRIPTION: Dramatic in its bold yet simple design, this Japanese lacquer box makes a striking statement. The background of this large box is lacquered in a mirror-like, black ro-iro ground, with a vivid gold lacquer design on the lid of bamboo superimposed over a ginko leaf, all within a gold circle. The box is supported on four curved feet, and the interiors are brilliantly lacquered in orange-red. This box is in excellent condition, with very minor “bumps” to the outer lid, and the red interior appearing almost new. Dating from approximately 1900 to 1920, this would make a spectacular table-top piece for any Asian or modern interior. DIMENSIONS: 14 ½” wide (35.5 cm) x 11 ¾” deep (30 cm) x 6 ¾” high (17.2 cm).
