A kaishi-ire is a pouch used during the Japanese tea ceremony to hold "kaishi" (paper) onto which sweets are placed. This particular one probably dates from the end of the Meiji period (1868-1912) to the Taisho period (1912-1926).

It figures a superb golden menuki (metallic ornament) made in the shape of a rooster, a hen and a chick, rendered in sublime details; the work of a master craftsman.

Please inquire if you have some questions.

The kaishi-ire is in very good condition with very little wear to the silk fabric.

 Dimensions: 12.3 x 7.8 cm (4.9 x 3.1 in), weight 45g (1.6 oz); menuki 3.4 x 1.6 cm (1.4 x 0.64 in)
