Antique Japanese Hand-painted Enameled Tin Chazutsu (Tea Canister) with Silver Dragonflies

Regular price $50.00

Hard to photograph because the gorgeous soft red on it pretty much glows, giving it a soft edge in photos--but this is really a beautiful thing. C. late 19th c. Japanese I believe, with a pair of dragonfly painted in silver with tiny black eyes, this I believe would be referred to as a chazutsu, or tin for holding tea--which it would do very well again now, though just beautiful set someone, especially alongside some silver of any sort or collection of lacquer boxes. 

4 1/2" t x 2 7/8" diameter and in very good condition. Lid fits snugly but comes off easily to open.
