This is a special and restrained Japanese fashion accessory which would have been worn looped over a belt. It consists of a brass cylinder with incised decoration, lift-off lid and contains its original bamboo brush with bristles. This is attached by cord to an ojime which is most likely of coral, which passes to a decorative brass rectangular small box which opens to reveal a container for ink. This closes with a firm snap. The decoration on one side has a floral blossom motif and on the other, a probable bamboo design with a signature. The overall condition is very good for age although there is some small, deeper tarnish on one corner of the ink holder which can be seen in one of the images. This is a quality complete example of a lovely Oriental fashion accessory for a specific purpose, ie calligraphy, and would grace any collection of Oriental pieces or even be at home in a museum. Length of brush holder 4.1 ins (10.5cm). Weight 28 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 342.
