A four-case inro bearing a gold fundame ground and designed in takamaiki with aogai accents. The internal compartments are rendered in nashiji.
To the front, a male peafowl with his full plumage on display and a flowering azalea to one side. The design sprawls onto the verso where a diminutive female bird is obscured from view by the larger male. The eyes of the male’s plumage are inlaid with an array of purples, blues, greens and pearl-coloured Aogai.
