vintage wood lacquerware jewelry box w/ mother of pearl shell inlay, birds & flowers

Mid-20th century vintage lacquered wood jewelry box with carved mother of pearl shell inlay design of birds and flowers, and a clasp shaped like a turtle! We'd guess this piece is Japanese (rather than Chinese?), though it doesn't appear to be marked.

It's lined in velvet, with slots to hold rings or earrings. Measures about 6" x 4 1/2" x 3" overall. It's in good condition with just a little light scratching and a few tiny chips to the finish.
