A high quality, antique, Japanese black lacquer document box. It has an external design of gold maki e plum blossoms. In Japanese culture plum blossom symbolises the beginning of Spring, having its own festival, the Ume Matsuri, alongside the more famous cherry blossom festival. The delicate flowers symbolise protection and good health and as such are popular motifs for home decoration. The interior of the box is decorated with nashiji lacquer. The document box comes with a lacquered storage box which is signed. Taisho period, circa 1920.
