A very attractive 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 tabako-ire is made of leather, with a small menuki carved in exquisite details, in the shape of a jovial character holding a fan. The reticulated ojime is equally exquisite, and the kiseru-zutsu is made of finely carved wood covered with lacquer. The bamboo stem of the kiseru is intact, but the metallic mouthpiece and shank are loose (they do not come off).

Please inquire if you have some questions.

The set is in very good condition.
Dimensions: kiseru 20.3 cm (8.1 in), tabako-ire 7.7 x 7.5 cm (3.1 x 3 in), kiseruzutsu (closed) 22.2 cm (8.88 in)
