I have this old lacquer box, which I assume to be Japanese. It measures 7 3/4" L x 6 7/8" wide x 3" high. The sides of the box are in a dark wine colored lacquer, the sloped edges on the top are red and then it has a painted bird and flowers on a black lacquer background on the top with a thin border of gold. The lid is hinged and the interior of the box is black lacquer. There are two signature? stamps in gold on the lower right corner of the lid and the remnants of a paper label on the bottom. I am trying to identify the AGE of this piece, what the stamps translate as and perhaps what it was used for. Thank you in advance.
