The eighties was the decade when lacquer was tops in everyone’s preferences.
I love colour in every aspect of my life, in my clothes, in my accessories, even in my home. In 1988 I started my own home and my choice of furniture was inevitably grey and white lacquer. All the decorative ornaments were chosen accordingly. This jewellery box was given to me as a present by my sister in law on her engagement day as it is customary for the bride to buy gifts for the groom’s mother and siblings. It was chosen to match perfectly with our bedroom. These past thirty years it has adorned my dressing table and at the same time harboured my jewellery. There’s a button at the bottom of the box which I used to wind so as to enjoy the delightful music the moment I opened the it. The interior is covered in velvet, which is stained by a rose pedal and a mirror. There’s a sticker indicating Japan.
