A very fine set composed of a kiseru (pipe), a tabako-ire (pouch for tobacco) and a kiseruzutsu (pipe case) dating from the Meiji period (1868-1912).
The kiseruzutsu, made of stag antler, is finely carved in the figure of a woman dressed in a kimono. The leather pouch is covered with lacquered intertwined threads; the menuki made in the figure of a running shishi (lion) in exquisite details.
Please inquire if you have some questions.
The set is in very good condition. The case shows some hairlines at the mouth, usual signs of stress, and the shank bears the usual marks of usage (being hit to empty the bowl). These are also visible on the bamboo stem, which is not split. Both mouthpiece and shank are a little loose.
Dimensions: kiseru 19.9 cm (8 in), tabako-ire 12.7 x 7.1 cm (5.1 x 2.8 in), kiseruzutsu (closed) 22.2 cm (8.88 in)
