Notice the phrase itself in Japan means a rich/noble girl that is usually overprotected and knows little of the world and may even have little freedom. Compare with "a bird in a gilded cage". So Japanese works sometimes gives this metaphor a more physical meaning. There's even a movie in 1935 with the exact name, ''Hakoirimusume'' (literally, "girl in a box").
