Up for auction is an antique Japanese solid wood Lacquerware box. It was made in the Showa period(1900 to 1940). It is solid wood ware , not plastic that is made today.
It is a beautiful burgundy color with hand painted chrysanthemum and bird and in the background is Mount Fuji or Fujisan as called by the local Japanese people.
Lacquerware makingtechniques were introduced to Okinawa from China in the 14th and15thcenturies. It has a keyhole but t is no key. Okinawa is highly suitable for lacquerware making because of its humid climate and the ready availability of decorative materials such as shells. Under patronage of the Ryukyu King lacquerware techniques in Okinawa became highly developed and lacquerware came to be exported to China, Southeast Asia and Japan.
It measures 12 inches long x 8.25 inches wide x 3.75 high. T are some nicks and scratches as to be expected for an item this old but It does not detract from it's beauty. I collect Japanese antiques and am getting rid of some of my collection. I will ship worldwide! Thanks for looking! A "STEAL" at this price! Will package carefully! What a bargain for someone! I paid much more many years ago. Thank you for looking! Arigato.
