Antique Japanese Lacquer Inro
A charming and elegant Antique four case Inro from EDO era Japan. Dating from the early 1800s and beautifully crafted featuring a botanic design and gold leaf urushi lacquer finish.
Also featuring a high quality ojime which could be carnelian and a highly detailed matching EDO era wooden netsuke finely hand carved with an unusual eliptical basket weave pattern. The cord appears to be original.
Cases fit snugly with precision. The Inro is also in very good to excellent condition for its two hundred plus years and completely intact and structurally sound. Showing signs of age and use with minor chips to lacquer and loss of gold leaf makie in a few places. The second case has a crack to the sokoita (compartment floor) which appears to remain completely stable (please see photos 10 and 11).
The approximate dimensions of Inro body are 7 cm height and 5 cm wide. Ships in wooden box shown in the images.
