This 100+ years old lidded box is made of kiri (paulownia) wood. It was used to hold Japanese chado items such as chawan bowl, tea container, and so on. This box shows a high degree of skill in the construction being made of all wooden peg (see picture 10). The inside of the box is divided into three areas for storing chado items. The lid has a fan shaped decoration and can slide up to open the box and down to close (see picture 6). The lid moves smoothly and fits perfectly.

A testament to its durability, even after over 100 years, aside from some minor wear, this presentation box remains in very fine condition with a glowing patina from years of loving use. It measures 8 3/4" wide x 4 5/8" deep x 6 1/4" tall (22.5 x 11.8 x 15.8 cm). It is a fabulous storage/presentation box with a century of warm patina and character.
