Box woven with willow - lacquered papier-mache (lacquered = urushi)

This box is woven from willow, covered with paper, and finished with lacquer over it. It is believed to have been made in the Edo period. There are some small tears in places, but no major damage and in good condition. The aged look of the black lacquer is very beautiful.
