Massive Japanese silver casket box, ca 1890. Rectangular with straight sides and hinged cover with loose-mounted trefoil handle. Allover spot hammering. Applied to sides are two wraparound dragons—scaly and slithering beasts with major dentition. A third is applied to cover in super scary high relief. Cold-blooded guardians of the family jewels. Interior velvet-lined with detachable and partitioned wood tray. On carved wood stand. Japanese marks on silver plaque mounted to base. Very good condition.

Dimensions: H (without stand) 6 x W 13 1/4 x D 9 in. H (with stand) 9 in. #BR782
