A rustic rattan pipe case with a lone gourde lacquered in black and silver, the himotoshi rather neatly formed of the rattan rather than the more commonly seen metal. At first glance, a rather tepid subject but, upon closer inspection, the black surface of the gourde has been decorated with tiny flying birds and clouds in Yamimaki-e (black on black lacquer). Sadly, there are two cracks to the surface of the lacquer, but all is stable and there are no losses. The price reflects the condition.

Unsigned
Late 19th century

Length - 21cm
