This is an unusual example of Japanese antique lacquer ware. I believe the chest dates to the late 19th or early 20th century. It measures 6 1/2 high and about 5 1/2 square at the top. As you can see in the pictures the lacquer is a crackled ivory white decorated with raised gilt depictions of blossoms and butterflies.The handle is bronze as are the little fruit shaped knobs on the drawers. The box is in very good antique condition with the expected small areas of wear but without breaks or repairs. Fine Japanese Meiji Antique Lacquer Portable Chest / Jewelry Box.
