This is a large lacquer box and has definitely been used. It has been beautifully accented with red headed cranes done in gold. Two cranes are under bamboo trees and one is flying above. Delicate gold and red colored lines create feathers on the birds. The gold is worn on the cranes legs. It appears that someone has painted on edge of the lid and touched up the missing places of the lacquer on the edge of the lid and base. The Inside of the box is a bright red lacquer. The sides have a shelf as something would have fit inside of the box but we don't know what. On the rim of the base is a peg that fits into a hole on the lid. Please see pictures for condition, this is a very old piece.

Measures: 9 3/4" l X 8 3/4' w X 6 1/2" h
