Hiuchi, Japanese lighter

Hiuchi (lighter-netsuke).
An iron flintlock lighter, decorated with silver and suaka taka-zogan flowers
A ring allows them to be worn at the belt in the same way as a netsuke.

These lighters were produced in reduced quantities, and the most elaborate models were reserved for the daimyo .
