Antique Japanese lacquer 3 drawer box with crane fittings and decoration
- Source: eBay UK
Nice Japanese antique lacquer box with a carry handle. Black lacquer with gold decoration - covered in cranes and cherry blossom designs - as well as having crane metal drawer handles and ornate side fittings to the carry handle. The box needs a little of attention but is in fairly good condition - there is a swing out rest at the front on the left side, but the right side one is missing, as is one bottom corner metal fitting. Not sure what this would be used for - either a writing box with rest for a brush, or possible tobacco items with rest for pipe? Has three drawers - two small one large at the bottom, and a large open area for storing things on the top. Measures 8 1/2 inches wide by 5 1/4 inches depth and is approximately 10 inches tall with carry handle extended.
