This petite keepsake box is a charming example of Japanese lacquer art, or urushi. The box began with a square wooden substrate, finished by layer upon layer of glossy black lacquer. In the classic style of gold-against-black, the exterior is decorated with two figures seated in an intricate indoor setting. Gently aged from years of use, this beautiful little box is full of character and makes for a lovely gift.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
