A bamboo brush case. A lone courtier plays kemari under a willow tree, his foot raised having just kicked the ball into the air, he looks up in its direction. The bamboo is of very high quality with a beautiful tight pattern at the top and bottom of the case; also, the details are finely carved into the surface of the bamboo, especially those that adorn the courtier’s clothes. The top and bottom of the case are plugged with ebony wood, the himotoshi is inlaid in ivory and the courtier’s eyes are inlaid in dark horn.
