19c Japanese TOBACCO POUCH pipe holder Tokugawa crest
19th century Japanese leather tobacco pouch with kiseruzutsu (tobacco pipe holder). Bronze kanemono - pouch clasp - is made in a shape of a roof tile bearing Tokugawa mon - the crest of Shogunal family. Ojime (slide bead for tightening the cord going from netsuke to inro) appears to be bone stained coral red. The pipe case is made out of dark celluloid type material and has a dent in it as seen on photos. The pouch still contains a bit of finely shredded tobacco. Pouch size 3 7/8x2 1/4 inches, pipe holder length 7 5/8 inches.
