Vintage orange-red painted wood box with maki-e lacquer painting of a river rider.  This wood box is a typical stationary designed for watercolor painter or calligrapher use. 

The inside has compartments for ink and water (to dip the brush), and the larger compartment used to hold an old calligraphy-use stone ink well (not included).


Be creative on how to re-use this box.  As a pen/brush tray, for cosmetic supply or stationary, accessories, or build your own travel painting kit (fit another paint palette in it).     Limitless possibilities.
