Set of Square Maki-e Lacquer Boxes, Decorated with Cherry Blossom Designs

Length: 7.5 cm, width: 5.4 cm, height: 2.5 cm

This small set of Japanese lacquered boxes includes three small boxes and a shallow dish. Since it was used as a curio box for objects in the Qing dynasty, it explains why a small jade object is found stored in each of the small boxes.
 
The surface of the box employs the techniques of maki-e and taka-maki-e to present a tree of cherry blossoms in nature. The background is also sprinkled with gold flecks to give the decoration an exotic and dazzling effect.
