Subject:Old Japanese lacquer boxes text translation help
Posted By: Nihonurushi Tue, May 21, 2019 IP: 2a01:cb05:8362:5000:


I have these two old boxes lying around my house. The first is a nice little urushi lacquer box with a small tray and the second is a bento box.

Both come in travel boxes. On the lids of these boxes there's some text. Unfortunately, I can't quite translate the calligraphy and was wondering if anyone could help.

The first photo is from the small box and the last two are for the bento box.
