Lovely vintage black lacquer box with the Bembo mark! Okinawa, Japan, circa 1960s.

Okinawan wood lacquerware techniques were established in the 1500s and have continued to today. Each piece is hand crafted and lacquered, then the design details are hand applied. The base woods are exotic Okinawan trees such as Deigo, Snowbell, or Bean Tree. 

This vintage Japanese lacquer powder or trinket box is covered in a fun multi color floral pattern, reminiscent of the classic 1960s Flower Power images. It measures 4.25 inches wide and 1.5 inches tall. It is a signed piece with the round Bembo mark, Okinawa with kanji signature. It is in good vintage condition, showing light wear and marks from use with some small chips on the inside rims and one on the outer edge. Please view all of the detail photos.  It's a sweet little box and so VERY mid century!

This pretty vintage powder box will make a fine addition to any lacquer ware collection, a thoughtful gift for someone special!
