A fantastic and fine example of the art of the Japanese Tobacco Pouch (Tabakoire). The Dragon motif appears in all aspects of this Edo Period piece. The leather pouch is embossed with wonderful colored Dragons, and attached by fine silver chains is a spectacular Ivory and Silver Dragon Manju (Kagamibuta Netsuke). The clasp is also a beautifully rendered and very animated Silver Dragon.
