Many thanks for your thoughts and opinions.
You may be correct,about it being Chinese,I bought it as being Japanese, it may have been wrongly described,I collect interesting small boxes,It will be interesting what others think.
The workmanship I feel is very good,would have taken a lot of time to make,The Chinese have been doing cloisonne for may hundreds of years.
much longer than the Japanese,so I would not be disappointed if it is Chinese.
I have posted an image of a Japanese box I have.
