Small cylindrical box, perhaps for thanaka, (there are remains of powder around the rim), or other cosmetic items; there are no trays. It is made of woven and coiled split bamboo and red, green and black lacquer. The interior has a coating of fine red cinnabar lacquer. On the exterior it is decorated in the yun technique with a simple form of the za-yun pattern, in black, the squares hatched with green (now very much darkened). On the base it is inscribed with the maker's name and engraved concentric circles in green on a black and red ground.
