Pipecase – Dragonflies

Price on request. 

A finely woven rattan pipe case of musozutsu form. The pair of dragonflies in various shades of lacquer face each other, one at the top looking down and other at the bottom looking up. Each creature’s body wraps around the opposite side of the case.

Both creatures are treated with different lacquer techniques, the top example being my favourite: the wings are lacquered in ishime that starts a subtle gold and fades to black towards the tips, the veins lacquered in black. The bottom creature’s body is treated in the same fashion, wings lacquered in silver with gold veins.

19th century

Signed with a single kanji “Ro” literally means Deaf

Length: 20.5cm
