ITEM
This is an authentic vintage Japanese medicine box from the 50s, with kanji and katakana writings. The writings on the top mean "Medicine Box" and "Ecchu Toyama" which is the city where this box was made. The writings to the front mean "Zubari" and "Oronine ointment" which are medicines' names. The writings on the right side mean "Roihi", again a medicine's name. On the left side there is information about this pharmaceutical company, which head office was in Toyama City but this box was used by customers who were living in Osaka, so they were served by the Osaka branch of this company. On the drawer there is a handwritten list of various medicines that the customer wanted/had.
Imported from Kyoto-Japan.

MATERIAL
Wood and cardboard.
