A charming and splendid piece of Yamanaka lacquerware. A round shaped candy box with lustrous lacquer and beautiful hand-painted sprays of plum trees in gold and silver. 

Candy boxes with lids are convenient for storing sweets, but also give you the pleasure of opening the lid to see what is inside the box. It can be used for various purposes, such as a container for small items making it an eye-catching item for your table.

The glossy and smooth surface of lacquer intertwines with the elegant and subtle beauty of gold painted petals of plums. The trunk of the tree is painted with brown lacquer, with its splendid brushstrokes express the vitality of this spring season tree. The plum tree displays an artistic curved shape seen in Asian paintings, enchanting us with its auspicious presentation. 

The piece comes in variations of two shades of lacquer, crimson red or the darker and glossy black. The red one instills a gracious and auspicious feel due to its vivid and brilliant presentation. Whereas the darker black lacquer conveys the more profound and subtle beauty of lustrous lacquer. 

Yamanaka lacquerware, also known as Yamanaka Shikki, is a lacquerware produced in the Yamanaka Onsen (hot spring) district of Kaga, Ishikawa Prefecture. This lacquerware is unique in that it blends the natural elegance of the wood grain with the elegant maki-e technique of sprinkling gold, silver, or other colored powder onto a lacquer painting.
