18th-19th Century Edo Period Japanese Wooden Box



We sell a variety of products, but we also want people all-over the world to know the charm of old Japanese products. I sell rare items that can only be found by Japanese people. In other words, I use Japanese sensibility to provide unique items. That is my pride. And this is an old Japanese wooden container from the Edo period It is a box that used to store rice. It was probably used in the Hokuriku (north) region of eastern Japan. Soot is pouring down and it is black. However, it cannot be easily removed by wiping. It is a folk tool used by the common people. However, such items are now very rare. Even if we Japanese look for it, we cannot find it easily. You can use it as a chair. Even as a small table. And also as a storage box. You may put a jar on this.
