Tarnished silver alternates with nashiji (gold powder dusted) columns rising to the fluted chrysanthemum shaped lid of this three tiered box covered with an ami-me net of gold dating from the later Edo period (early 19th century). The outer design intimates the piece is wrapped in a golden net pouch, tied closed at the top. The boxes assembled are 19.5 cm (7-1/2 inches) tall, 11.5 cm (4-1/2 inches) diameter and it comes protected in a wooden storage box. There are very minor chips around the fluted edges, and one chip to the tip of one petal on the lid, but is overall in great condition considering the age.
