Meiji Period Japanese Lacquered Gold Two-Part Box

About

This very beautifully lacquered box is from the Meiji period in Japan. Made between 1864 and the end of the 19th century this small two tied box would have been a luxury item for storage or personal effects. Crafted with an all-over exterior gold fleck lacquer the interior is done in a spotted copper and black lacquer creating a dramatic personal experience reserved for the owner. Lacquer ware though not exclusively a Japanese tradition is seen at its best in Japanese objects. With many possible decorative devices and inlaid with rare, costly or even humble materials the work was time consuming and delicate work.
