Zogan style incense box
This little box is decorated with peonies and birds.
The rarity of that piece is that is looks like a laquerwork, with golden makie on a black background, but is in reality an amazing metal work using a special technique called zogan.
Honzokan starts by cutting the base with a groove in the shape of the decoration. But that extremely tiny groove is precisely shaped, wider at the bottom that the top, in order to retain the inlay which is hammered in. Meiji-Taisho era.
