A beautifully crafted brown-lacquer pipe case deeply carved on one side with a bird in flight over peonies, a butterfly over foliage on the other. The pouch, of extremely fine embroidery, depicts three samurai seated in a forest. Its bronze kanemono modeled as a cockerel with gold and multi-metal inlays, the ojime carved as waves with spume. This richly patterned smoking set is in very good condition. Meiji Period, Japan
