Antique Asian Lunch Storage Box

We acquired this at an Estate Auction and it appears to be very old. We believe this to be a Japanese Bento Food Storage box/ lunch box. We are not experts so this possibly also could be an old Chinese or Korean piece. It has 3 compartments and is made of what appears to be wood as well as woven reeds & straw that have a coat of thick black shiny paint (lacquer?) with some areas having red and gold. Decorated with gold paint in an oriental floral motif.

Box measures 10 3/4" tall (14" tall including the handle) x 10 3/8" wide.

The lacquer has worn off areas & some cracked areas. T are areas of wear, brittleness, splits & a couple of holes in the wood and woven reeds. A great old Asian antique to display in your home or shop.
