Up for sale is a small antique porcelain box bearing the Minamoto clan crest (mon).
I'm not certain what the exact use of these small porcelain boxes are, but I would guess that the women of the clan stored make up, such as lip stick, in these (East Asian women traditionally stored their naturally made cosmetics in small porcelain boxes). If you have a better idea, please do share.
The crest is a gold color on soft porcelain white.
Approximate date: Pre 1960
