    I bought this Asian lacquer box that has coins embedded in it. I can’t figure out if it is chinese or Japanese. Or it’s age. What do you think? Thanks!

      Beautiful detail work - what are the dimensions? Any markings inside or underneath, or interior details for usage? Looks like a travel kit of some sort...

      It’s about 6 inches by 7 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches. It looks like a jewelry box maybe. I also have the key. No markings besides the two embedded coins and two embedded rectangle pieces. I’m not exactly sure what theses embedded items are or what year they were made. I can’t find them anywhere. It’s pretty beat up, cracked and the hinges are falling off.
