Inro Japanese lacquer, Dean Collection, Togidashi, Japan XVIIIth century

Inro. Japanese lacquer – Urushi, open by 5 cases. Togidashi lacquer. On the face, a cat is creeping into a room through a circular bamboo cross-trutted window, the truts secured with strands of creeper. Live bambou is visible outside in the garden. A rat, the object of the cat attention, crouched at the foot of the Chinese table-stand, upon which stands a Koro (incense burner). The charm of the cat’s face is belied by its long, sharp extended claws on the window’s edge. The face of the inro has a Roiro ground sprikled with Aogai-nashiji, gradating to black towards the bottom, with the exception of the night shy outside the window, which is a pure Roiro. This way be a suggestion of the wall of the room seen in dim light. The top of the inro is Roiro and the base Kinji. Interior is Nashiji with Fundame rims. Japan Edo – XVIIIth century. Important piece from the Mike & Hiroko Dean Collection, illustrated on the Catalogue of the Collection by Barry Davies, 2002. Illustrated on the Catalogue In Nihon no Shikki/Japanese lacquer – an Exposition, by Mike and Hiroko Dean, Kyoto Shoin, 1984, n°87.
