Antique Japanese Wooden Marquetry/Parquetry & Lacquered Jewellery Chest / Box. Unusual box with parquetry top lacquered sides and insides painted with Mount Fuji.
The red cushion inside may be a replacement. I have included a number of photos and these probably describe the item better than I can and form part of the description. Everyone has different considerations when purchasing items and if you need any further information, please feel free to contact me and I will try to help.
Condition: In a pretty reasonable condition for age, structurally sound with scratches, marks and dents commensurate with age and use. To the side base there is a rather big chip but it is far from obvious (picture 11). The base has shrunk a little.
There look to be a few little pin holes to the top that have filled over time. As you look at the box the left hand side sits a little high.
There is no key for the lock and the lock is untested although it does look like the catch may have been broken off. Internally it is in quite a nice condition with very minimal wear to the lacquer. The pad to the base may not be original. Size: 34.5cm x 23.5cm x 13cm high. I will try to answer questions as soon as possible, but this will normally be in the evening.
