Large Japanese Kashibako lacquer box in form of a lifelike fish. The fish is covered using Kamakura lacquer technique: dark red on the outside with black the interior. Its raised tail & pectoral fin served as handle & finial respectively. The scales are in gorgeous detail along with the fins, and a wonderful carved detail with rich colors. 

A unique serving piece similar to this is only used during the formal tea ceremony and dinners like Kaiseki or Omakase, which is a traditional multi-course Japanese dinner, not unlike Western haute cuisine where dishes are specifically selected by the host. The piece is unsigned which is common for these functional serving pieces.
