Description

This interesting old Japanese box is made of wood and assembled with tight fitting joints secured with shaved bamboo pins.  The box includes brush-applied Japanese writing on two sides though we are unable to make out the meaning.  The box is firm and in good structural condition though it does have marks and scratches from handling and wears a very deep patina of age.  The box dates from the late 19th or early 20th century.
