Kamakura-Bori Lacquered Incense Box (Kogo) with Cherry Blossom Motif

This lovely small incense box in the traditional styling of Kamakura-Bori lacquer shows one open cherry blossom and one bud adorning the lower right side of the lid.

The piece is in excellent condition. Dimensions: 7/8”h x 3-7/8” w x 2-1/4”d
