vintage japanese saliva meter box

fantastic wooden box with carrying handle at top and latch on front. beautiful dovetailing. absolutely love the metal tag plate with its old japanese writing. when translated, it reveals it was made by Morita Manufacturing.
the japanese writing uses old type characters, the address is also says "Tokyo City" which would be an old term for Tokyo, which dates this box from 1889 to 1943.

originally held some type of device for testing saliva. now, this perfect in size box can be great for keeping small finds, ephemera, photos, or supplies.

7" x 8" x 14"

we happily ship worldwide. just convo for shipping costs. :)
