Make-up boxes - Japanese lacquer - Edo

A pair of circular make-up boxes in nashi-ji lacquer adorned with a floral pattern and an aoi go mon motif (three mallow leaves in a ring) on the lid. This motif is well-known for being the mon (family crest) of the famous dynasty of the Tokugawa shoguns. The bottom of the lid and the top of the box are lined with silver. The interior is in nashi-ji lacquer.

These two boxes were probably part of a wedding trousseau of which one of the pieces, a square incense box with identical ornamentation, is kept in the Pincé Museum in Angers (inv. MTC 8251)*.
