NAME: Lacquered wood Japanese jubako with handle

DESCRIPTION: 3 plus 1 jubako (tiered lunch boxes) with lid. The bottom box has the handle attached. A flat slotted tray sits inside in which the other boxes rest. Also included are 5 individual plates. It is decorated with the moon, cranes and pines and has deep dark red lacquered finish. Brighter red is on the inside.

AGE: First half of Showa, probably 1930-40's

SIZE: Measures 7-1/8" (18.2cm), not including the handle. Overall height is 10-3/4" (27.5cm), including the handle. The small dishes are 4-1/8" (10.5cm) squared.

CONDITION: Normal wear and tear from use (bangs, dings, scratches) can usually be seen on these older pieces. Additionally, long term storage may add to the condition problems, (bug or rodent damage, drying out, mold, etc.).

This set is in good condition with normal aging and wear issues including minor dents and light scratches.

The handle box show signs of light wear where pieces are set in. One corner has a short hairline crack and another has three chips in the varnish.

The inset tray has a little chipping around the slots.

The top and second box are in good condition as well as the lid and small dishes.

The third box has the wood separating in the corners and cracks in the varnish. Two corners have a short crack and one corner has two short cracks. These three corner cracks are slightly visible from the outside. The fourth corner has a longer crack (1-1/4") and is more visible from the outside. You can see it in the first picture. Individual pieces of wood make up the box and, over time, can dry out and separate.

NOTES: Very beautiful piece that displays well.

The old lacquered pieces are not recommended for food. They are better used as decor. Plastic boxes are safer for food.

Lacquer can be cleaned with warm water and mild soap. However, if there are cracks or chips in the lacquer, it's better to wipe with barely damp soft cloth, avoiding the cracked or chipped area. Always wipe dry and don't let stand in water.
