Functional Eloquence. This Cherry Blossom Jewelry Box with its beautiful, hand-painted lacquer design is evocative of a 16th-century Japanese inkstone box with blossom motif, curated by our Freer Gallery of Art. Similar jewelry boxes also reside in the Asian ethnological collections of our Natural History Museum. Wooden case with lined interior and removable tray. 4"h. x 12"l. x 8"w.
We celebrate the beautiful cherry blossoms, whose delicate blooms along the nearby Tidal Basin are echoed in the motifs of many print, painted and ceramic artworks in our Freer Gallery of Art.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
