A four-case gold-lacquered inro depicting the great Heian Period poet, Prince Narihira, and his courtier on horseback. On the reverse, a horseman and attendant race over mountains and streams to overtake them. Detailing in takamaki-e, togidashi and kirikane on polished kinji ground. Manju netsuke with scattered rice design on roiro ground. Signed on base in gold lacquer, Kajikawa Bunryusai saku. The lacquer is in very good condition, except for a small chip on the manju netsuke, owing to its age and usage. Late Edo Period, Japan
