An emerald cut shape on a beveled foundation, the box is cherry dyed black, thus the color is in the wood not the lacquer finish which is clear.
The artwork is derived from an antique Japanese lacquer box from the Meiji era (1800's).
The flower and grass design is built up lacquer with an embossed effect that stands above the surface, but the artwork is under the hand polished eighteen surface coats of lacquer and thus will not fade with age.
Interrior bottom is burgundy ultrasuede.
Hinges are 95 degree solid brass Brusso hinges so that top remains upright when open.
The underside of the top is vaulted in the inverse shape as the top side. Dimensions are 12" x 9" x 5-1/2" high.
