A beautifully lacquered four-tiered inro with tsuishu ojime, carved in
relief with flowers and scrollwork. A lustrous, mirror-like roiro
ground provides an elegant backdrop for the beloved theme represented
here of the cockerel and family.
Togidashi maki-e in silver, gold and red lacquer define this
empathic visual in exquisite detail, fine gold flakes of
various sizes floating on the background. On the reverse, a small
chick stands on a ground of shimmering gold maki-e. Roiro interiors
are lined with gold lacquer.
Koman signature in gold lacquer on
the base. This elegant inro was formerly a part of the Champeau
Collection and is in excellent condition with no cracks or damage.
