Japanese Meiji Period Gilded Cherry Blossom Decorated Black Lacquer Document Box
This fine Japanese Meiji Period gilded black lacquer two piece dispatch or letter box is decorated with delicately gilded cherry blossoms and is bound together by means of a heavily woven green silk band attached to the lower section of the box with silvered bales with cast cherry blossom backplates. The box (with lid) is 9 1/2" long x 2 7/8" wide x 2 tall. The piece came with what I thought was a bit of a whimsical description by a former owner that reads: Japanese lacquer box in Cherry blossom design for Spring. To carry letters in the days of the Samurai - 18th c. The box is in great almost pristine condition with just a few tiny repaired chips.
