A splendid five-case inrō with an all-over design of rice in togidashi and takamaki-e against a very fine sprinkled gold ground. The design is embellished with a selection of rice stalks individually picked out in aogai. Scattered amongst the rice are treasures associated with a successful harvest. To the front is Daikoku’s wish-granting mallet, the striking face in aogai. Next to the mallet lies a stylised clover. To the verso, a fundo, again rendered in aogai, next to a pair of scrolls in gold togidashi. The scrolls are placed in such a way to allow us to read the Kanji for Rice 米.
A very fine inrō with the two main techniques of togidashi and takamaki-e exquisitely executed.
Signed, Koma Yasutada
