Antique Japanese Wooden Box Lid / Late Edo-Meiji Period / like a Painting

$600

About

We have an aesthetic sense peculiar to Japanese people. And we introduce the unique items that only we can do, the route of purchasing in Japan, the experience value so far, and the way that no one can imitate. It is a lid of an old Japanese wooden box. It is from the late Edo period to the Meiji period. I think it's probably a wooden box called "nagamochi" that holds kimono, futons, living tools, etc., and its lid. It will be difficult to obtain a lid with such a nice atmosphere that makes you feel "Wabi-Sabi" even in Japan. It is made of paulownia and has Japanese paper on its surface. The lid is blackened by the accumulation of soot for many years and looks very good. When hung on the wall, it looks like a painting and is very beautiful. In Japan, such things are becoming less and less common. We believe that it is our mission to convey the charm of such old things and keep them.
