A Japanese lacquer inro decorated with the image of six monkeys.
The outer surface of the Inro is riveted with gold lacquer which creates an elegant contrast with the metal scissors. For this reason I created a scene everywhere, allowing the monkeys to interact in an evocative natural environment. Everywhere if you pick up some of the Matsu brooches, you should also say that they rest gracefully on the raised origins.
He makes a wooden netsuke, refreshing a monkey with a fish which contributes to the narrative of the work.
The internal compartments are in nashiji lacquer.
Period: Edo late 18th early 19th century.
Internal dimensions: 7 x 6.5 x 2.8 cm
Netsuke size: 3.2 x 3.3 x 3.2 cm.
State of conservation: Very good
