Kashibako 

Antique sweet-box with katami-gawari decoration

Early Edo period (1603-1868) 17th century 

8 x 11 x 5.5 cm

This antique lacquer kashibako is made with a paper core instead of the usual wooden one, resulting in being extremely light.

A bolt-shaped line (katami-gawari) across the top divides the surface into two parts, each decorated with a different texture; this particular feature is typical of the Momoyama and early Edo period lacquerware. On one side, the design represents chrysanthemum’s leaves on a bamboo curtain background, while on the other there are hollyhock leaves resting on a chessboard motif.
