Lacquer surface decoration, especially with gold, was refined to the highest level in Japan. Our elegant deluxe stationery box is based on details from two nineteenth century maki- e lacquer boxes in the Museums collection, one decorated with stylized bamboo and birds, and the other, with chrysanthemums by a stream.

  • Includes 10 notecards (5 each of 2 images), 15 correspondence cards, 14 gift enclosures (7 each of 2 images), 39 envelopes, and 39 self-adhesive seals
  • Box: 5 1/8''H x 6 3/4''W x 5 1/8''D; notecards: 4 1/4'' x 5 3/4''; correspondence cards: 5 3/4'' x 3 15/16''; gift enclosures: 2 1/2'' x 3''

Art History

Among lacquer techniques developed to the highest degree in Japan is the use of gold and silver in powdered form, either mixed in to form gold or silver lacquer or sprinkled over lacquered surface to create a graduated gold or silver effect. The resultant works often display great subtlety and delicacy, and maki-e (gold or silver) lacquer is one of the supreme achievements of Japanese decorative art.
