Japanese black lacquer four-section inro (medicine case) inlaid with a mother-of-pearl leaping rabbit on one side and a fawn under grapes on the other. The case is attached by string to an ojime (likely bone or antler) and a stag antler netsuke incised with a prominent mushroom. Appears to date from the early 20th century (late Meiji to Showa period). Inro: 3 7/8” x 2 1/4”; netsuke: 2 1/2" long. Very good overall condition with signs of use. This set is from an old Scottsdale, Arizona collection.
