Inrō - Pups Playing in the Snow

SOLD

A very sweet four-case inrō depicting three playful pups frolicking in snow, their hair work well rendered. I’m especially taken with the lone pup; his two-tone body has a beautiful silky finish. A ground of textured silver lacquer with splashes of gold and silver hirame. Snow-covered nandina wrap around the cord runners connecting the front and rear scenes, the fruit delicately picked out in red lacquer. Each of the puppy’s eyes is inlaid in glass.

Circa 1870

Unsigned

Height: 7.5cm
