An exquisite five-case inro of roiro-ground depicting the "Fisherman's Dream". The clam and water reeds are executed in takamaki-e, the exquisite under-water palace and stylized waves on the reverse in silver and gold togadashi. On the interiors, the rich nashiji ground glows. The piece is signed on the base in maki-e, Kanshosai saku, and is completed with a coral ojime and purple silk cords. This inro with minimal signs of usage, is in excellent condition for its age. 19th Century, Japan
