Box originally housed geta 2002.76.9 a-b. A: lid, B: base. Ouside is decorated with a design of white rectangles with jagged vertical edges on a blue ground. Laid over this design is a fine coating of white sisal fibers, with larger irregular clumps of fibers at intervals. Printed on the lid in gold color are a line of Japanese characters in the upper right corner and a logo in the bottom left corner. Kaoru Kitagawa, 11/7/02: The text on the lid says "footwear." Date is probably 1960s, based on the shoes inside.

Used: Sei Kubota Kimura
