Japanese sewing box, Hari-Bako, Taisho

Japanese sewing boxes, hari-bako, were traditional accessories in a Japanese home.  It still can be used as such but it can also function as a jewelry box, a decorative object or to store precious little objects.  To protect the wood and give it a slightly light glow, a lemon colored lacquer was applied.

In good condition. Measures 11 1/2” x 9” x 7”.
