This is a beautiful little vintage Japanese Parquetry box.  It dates from about the early 20th century, and is in pristine condition.

It features a Japanese technique of parquetry which dates from the Edo period. Yosegi-zaiku parquetry is made differently than Western parquetry. Sticks of woods of different colours are glued together to form a block which section is then cut in very thin slices forming a design.

This fine Japanese Taisho period box (bako) is decorated with yosegi-zaiku parquetry, inlaid with ilex macropoda, katsura, sumac, camphor, cucumber tree and cedar on a kiri wood base to create a multitude of overlapping geometric patterns.

Yosegi-zaiku parquetry (as featured on my lovely box) is a specialty of Hakone region.

This one is similar in decoration to Japanese puzzle boxes - and although you do have to arrange the three little lidded boxes inside to form a pictorial design - there is not really much puzzling to doing this!

As you can see - the lid has a beautiful intricate geometric design on the outer box - and inside are three little "secret" lidded trinket boxes. You can remove these - by pressing through the little circular holes in the base.  A lovely example: Measures 10.5 x 8.5 x 3.5 cm.
