Edo Era, circa 1850s-1860s, Japanese red lacquer over wood Japanese Bento Box in 5 sections. The exterior features Shibayama style of inlay on a red lacquer ground with the interior and underside being black lacquer. The Shibayama design has several types of stone inlays including MOP with branching, cherry blossoms, leaves, buds and rockery all done in raised work. The workmanship is very good. In very good condition with no repairs or touchups, the only issue is some lacquer is missing to a few edges and a bit to the foot area, and only 2 small stones missing from all the inlays. Having no repairs, this is a terrific piece for the serious collector. Measures 7.5" high x 4.5" square.
