A covered iron box designed with gilt-damascened borders, its lid and sides with Hiroshige-like scenes of villagers fleeing from the rain. On its cover, an amusing scene of the god of thunder, Raiden, reigns atop a massive cloud formation, while a startled oni, bearing a straw hat for refuge, attempts to escape from the thunder and rain. Incised signature of Koryu on base. Interiors are gold washed. This exquisite multi-metal box is in excellent condition with only minor surface wear to the iron due to age. Length: 4.5”, width: 3.75” Meiji Period, Japan
