    LOUMANAL

    I am uploading this small Japanese Sandalwood Tobacco Box that we have had "forever" and that we picked up at a flea market during one of our early excursions. One of our new members "DaysiMeadows" has uploaded a similar decorated box and wanted to see my Tobacco Box to compare. This one measures 4 1/4" across by 2 1/4" tall, has a tiny recessed knob, the cover is carved with Japanese motifs that include mount Fujiyama and has a carved ring on the outside with flowers and leaves. The border has finely detailed ribbing above and below it. I think that it's a very old little tobacco box and is probably made of Sandalwood. RER(BOB)

      Thank you jwendell222! I appreciate your knowledge and help. Sandalwood was a guess for me and Bamboo sounds quite reasonable.....certainly the right size. BOB
