Kozuka with Inro, Bag, and Netsuke


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This kozuka depicts a typical inro of the Edo period and the accessories worn with it. At the bottom is a cloth bag that could have been used to carry coins. Above it is a bead ("ojime") that may be mother of pearl. The "inro," or medicine case, is in the middle. It is decorated with chrysanthemums. The bead accompanying the inro is coral. At the top is a malachite netsuke in the shape of a gourd. The cord that connects all of these pieces would have been used to secure them to the belt of a traditional kimono.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
