Early 20th Century Japanese Lacquer Jubako/Bento Box.


This Bento box from early/mid 20th century Japan is a delightful piece of curios! It comprises a selection of lacquer jubako boxes that would have been used for the storage of food or tea in the kitchen but could equally be deployed as jewellery or specimen storage. With a Japanese inscription on the storage box this charming antique is as decorative as it is practical!
