I don't know much about this kind of item. I know I haven't seen many of them; the detail of the construction made me want to buy it. It is actually a very finely basket frame (both top and bottom) covered over with lacquer (the top with a deep red and the bottom with a black). It has some wear and minor loss due to use and age. I'm not sure of the exact age or origin, but it is quite old and is S.E. Asian. The size is 3 inches wide and 1 and 1/2 inches deep when it is closed.
