A fine rectangular suzuribako with canted corners and silver rims. On its cover, myriads of golden sakura float asymmetrically in a water-like pattern on a polished, roiro ground. Feathery sprays in low relief cover the interiors, surrounding a shibuichi, sakura- formed water dropper and 2 lacquered brushes. The kiri bako, signed by the maker, quotes a classic poem relating to its theme – sakura, water, mountains and wind. Signed by Uemaatsu Hobi (1872-1933). Writing box includes tomobako. This excellent example of a scholar’s box is in mint condition. Length, 8.25"; width, 7.25" Taisho Period, Japan
