Lacquer box from Japan




Lacquer box from Japan





A lacquered box that was made in Japan in the nineteenth century, some years before it was acquired in 1880. It has compartments to hold paper and brushes and was often an attractive purchase on the Western market. Japan opened its doors to Europe in 1853 and the Exeter horticultural firm of Veitch and Sons sent a number of botanical collectors to different parts of the world to obtain seeds for sale in the UK. Japan, China and SE Asia were examples of such destinations.
During their travels they would frequently spend time with the local people and sometimes acquired souvenirs of the day. This box was acquired by one of two collectors working for the Veitch firm; John Gould Veitch in 1860-61 or Charles Maries in 1877-79.
This item comes from the ethnographic collections at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter.
Dimensions L.248 x W.193 x H.125mm
The museum accession number for this object is E1961.
