delicate dusty pink porcelain box signed "japan" - post WWII. dusted gold rims with most attractive raised gold painted wheat pattern. most likely a cigarette box - no smoke aroma present.
no cracks or crazing. a couple of tiny chips on the inner rim of the box portion. some of the gold paint rubbed off of the repousse wheat pattern. remarkably none of the raised pattern has been chipped or cracked. overall bonny condition for a lady most likely in her 70's.
stunning etude in porcelain.
5" by 4 1/2" by 2 1/2".
thanks for looking.
