Lacquered portable box
Price: € 450,00
Small dark red delicate lacquered portable box on feet with a revolving door. At the outside on all four sides decorated with lotus leaves and flowers in raised gold takamakie lacquer. Inside black lacquered. Possibly to store objects for the tea ceremony.
The door is slightly bended. But overall in nice original unrestored condition.
Beautiful original hardware in the shape of the Wisteria crest (family “mon”) on the door and hinges.
With metal handle on the top.
The four feet subtle decorated with some thin gold lacquered lines suggesting the water underneath the lotus flowers.
