Cricket Box


Cricket Box, originally uploaded by frykitty.

Hee...I just realized I said "another new box" below, when I hadn't posted this one yet.

It is several decades old (hard to say exactly how old). Though I will proudly serve with it, I certainly would not pack it for lunch. The three shimmering trays are ceramic.

Incidentally, while this was sold as a bento box, I would not be surprised if it serves some other purpose. If anyone knows, I'd love to hear.

hrm, hi, i just chanced upon your blog while reading about people's fun with bento making.

just to answer your query, usually for chinese new year/etc lunar new year stuff, buddhists believes that sweets are great to have (to fulfill the phrase "to sweeten up you year"), along with other tidbits.

to contain these sweets and such for new year, we have bento like display containers that are sold through out the pre new year season. recently they have turned plastic, but previously we use glass containers and ceramics that looks something like the above.
