Red lacquered box with Japanese paper collage top

The box itself is a cigar box from the local smoke shop; its red paint is original.

Inside, the natural wood not stamped with the cigar company's name has been left natural; the inside bottom and lid where the name was stamped into the wood has been covered with a matching Japanese paper (not collaged or sewn).
