Japanese Pipe Case with Ojime
A small Japanese bamboo case in the form known as kikko-chiku or bamboo shaped in the form of turtle shells. This formation comes from a genetic morph.

The bamboo case comes with an ojime like bead carved in the form of a bamboo basket with a fish and octopus sticking out from the basket. Age: 19th century Size: length 8" diameter .75"
