A two-case inrō depicting a chubby bird inlaid from various sections of shell, a glass eye and lacquered beak, perched on a tree branch in autumn, with nandina on the reverse and berries inlaid in coral. The risers are decorated with vegetation in chinkinbori. Both the style of the risers and the large shell inlays are typical of the artist Nomura Chohei, who worked between 1760–1810.
