DETAILS OF ITEM

This piece measures 7.25 inches wide by 4.75 inches high by 4.5 inches deep. The charming sized box was once used to store important stamps and seals called Hanko for a very wealthy merchant and it was custom made from solid Keyaki (Japanese Elm) wood. Keyaki is a highly desired and expensive wood in Japan because of its hardness, durability, and its rich and spectacular grain pattern. Upon opening the top by pushing the knob that acts as a latch, the inside of the piece measures 6.25 inches by 3.5 inches by 2.25 inches.

The back of the single drawer was made out of Kirinoki (Paulownia wood). The hardened wooden nails used to construct the drawer are shown in a closeup photo.

This front drawer has some reddish orange colored stains still inside where there used to hold the Japanese stamp pad called a "Shuniku" having that same color. All of the metal fittings were hand-forged iron and original to the piece. The condition of this piece is near mint considering its age being from the early Meiji era (circa 1870's).
