Late Meiji (1890s to 1912) Japanese boxwood seal set consisting of the seal itself, seal holder and seal paste container, all fitting very well. Excellent quality crisp carving, old red seal paste in the grooves of the seal and in the paste container. Recessed area on the side indicates the position of the top of the imprint. Beautiful patina, grime accumulation on the surface. The impression of the seal is shown on Enlargement 1 (photo is flipped left to right to present the image as it will actually print on paper). Height when assembled 2 5/16 inches, seal diameter 1/2 inches.
