A Japanese Lacquer And Mother-of-pearl Inro flag

Object description :

"A Japanese Lacquer And Mother-of-pearl Inro"
Inro in lacquer depicting a dragon partially hidden among the clouds lacquered in relief.

The outer surface is covered in lacquer with dark brown nuances, which offers an elegant contrast with the dragon's shimmering mother-of-pearl.

Looking at the inside of the box you can see that there are two compartments.

The ojime is made of glass with parallel horizontal blue lines while the netsuke in lacquered wood and metal depicts an archaic design that could depict the Tama (the sacred Buddhist jewel) often associated with the dragon.

This inro is signed Chohei zō 樗平造 Nomura Chohei.
