1920s Japanese Komai cigarette case inlaid on the front in gold and silver with a scene of a sparrow about to land on a bamboo branch. Perfectly captured scene, most probably a copy of a woodblock print. Black finish to the metal, clever use of color (one bamboo stem is gold, the other is silver), in great condition, inlaid on the back with 24 karat gold maker’s mark. Lock and hinges are in perfect working order. Size 4 3/4 x 3 1/16 inches.
