Unique: Hakone Parquet Wooden Box

| /

Hakone parquet started over 200 years ago in Hakone, Kanagawa Prefecture. It is a traditional woodworking craft that skillfully creates geometric patterns by using natural woods of varying colors. Sadly, this traditional art is dying out today.

This vintage Hakone box features a nicely fitted lid and bottom with the same parquet pattern inside and out. Imported from Japan.

4 1/8 inches long, 2 5/8 inches wide, 1 1/4 inches tall. Excellent condition, indeterminate age.
