Picnic box set
Daimyo luncheon set with four compartments, two large sake bottles, a fruit tray and a compartment for sake cups. Gold lacquer on Nashi-ji ground depicts scenes in raised gold, a group of ladies enjoying & dancing, trees, clouds etc. on the sides of the box and the tray, and on the top is the dragon-goddess riding on the waves.
The style and workmanship indicate that it is the work of a master artist.
