Highly decorative and beautiful piece: Jubako, a traditional Japanese lunch box with its artistic painted pattern on a very aesthetic ceramic : "Nightingale on Plum Branch".

The plum blossom and nightingale are frequently shown together to symbolize the coming of spring.

Jubako are stacking boxes that were/are used to hold food. They are traditionally either ceramic/porcelain or lacquered wood, and are either square- or cylindrical-shaped. The square ceramic ones are the least common jubako but are perceived to have a more “Japanese” aesthetic while the round ones are more “Chinese.” The ceramic or porcelain ones are most often blue and white (sometsuke), but multi-colored ones are seen as well, including vividly colored Imari porcelain. Jubako were/are used to hold the traditional New Year’s meal, osechi-ryori, with each layer holding a different course. These days porcelain jubako can pretty much be found only in antique stores, but lacquered jubako are still used for New Year’s osechi.

It is an amazingly impressive piece to look but it is also handy for holding things like our jewels, keys or other trinkets.

It has 3 compartments and a lid.

A perfect gift for lovers of useful beautiful pieces, or Japanese culture and ceramics fans.
