This Japanese cloisonne box, dating from the early to the mid 20th century, is a beautiful example of the technical and artistic skill that characterized that nation's craftsmen during this period. The box measures 4 1/2 inches long by 3 1/4 inches wide by 1 5/8 inches in height. Set against a jet black background, the bird and flowers in a variety of colors are a lovely combination. Though unsigned, the box is clearly the work of a talented maker. The box is completely free of cracks or enamel and wire loss, and only has some some minor age related tarnishing and a little lifting at the back hinges (which are, however, firmly in place and functional).
