Description

Lovely Japanese Meiji (19thC) raden (mother-of-pearl) black two-tier lacquer storage box. Good condition with some losses due to age and use.
Raden is a Japanese term for a decorative technique used in traditional crafts such as Japanese lacquerware and woodwork. It refers to a method of inserting a board-like material, which is a cut out part of mother-of-pearl inside the shell, into the carved surface of lacquer or wood. Measures 24.5cm x 23cm x 16.5cm high. It is an incredibly skilled and time-consuming art.
Internal Ref: AD358/22
