This simple lacquered box was once used as a 19th-century snack box, presented as a gift during holidays and special occasions. To the delight of the recipients, the unassuming box would have opened to reveal a bounty of popular snack foods, such as roasted melon seeds, dried fruits, and soybeans toasted with cinnamon, fennel, and other spices. The exterior of the square box is coated with a layer of brown lacquer, now crackled and textured from years of use. Left unfinished, the interior of the box has weathered with age, revealing the brown coloring of its wooden construction.
