    Impressive piece. I would say late 19th century, Meiji period.
    What is on top of the lid?

    This is nicer than most out there and think we are $1000.00 or more on this in the right market. Consequently, I think you should have an expert take a look and possibly send off to a specialty auction. I don't know where you are but I.M. Chait comes to mind in Los Angeles. There are others but I doubt this is valuable enough for some of the big boys.

    Disclaimer: I have no connection to I. M. Chait and can not vouch for them. You should do your own research and probably send photos off to more than one house.
