Japanese Shibayama Lacquer Writing Box

sy26b

An excellent box and cover, notable for its imaginative, outdoor landscape design which, with cover flipped, spills immediately onto the interior. One side is flat straight-edged, the opposing side rounded at the corners. Fine gilt highlights painted over a detailed, stipple ground. No marks, made in Japan. Condition: small felt bumpers on corners, wear commensurate with age, otherwise very good. Dimensions: 9.75″ x 4″ x 7/8″ (sy26)

price: $950
