Lovely Lacquers

Both of these early 20th Century Japanese lacquers share a secret in their center. The bento box above hides a royal family crest (or mon) under the flora decorated lid, while the seemingly simple box below reveals a groovy gilt pattern.
 Bento: 6"h x 7" in diameter
 Box: Lid is 9" x 4" x 1.5"h
