Tonkotsu and Pipe Case – Grape Vines

A magnificent tonkotsu with matching pipe case, the tonkotsu features a sumptuous reddish-brown ground covered in grape vines and small gourdes.

A very creative use of materials and techniques, each group of leaves has been rendered using a different technique and/or coloured lacquer. The grapes inlaid in mother of pearl and gourdes in coral.

The accompanying wood pipe case depicts three metal inlaid squirrels, lacquered vines wind their way down and onto the reverse.

Circa 1900
