This is a fascinating complete Japanese fashion accessory for tobacco smoking. The sagemono, ojime and inro are all of lacquered bamboo held together with a silk cord. Within the sagemono is a classic metal tobacco pipe with the very small bowl as was the custom for such Japanese pipes. The inro has a lift-off lid and single compartment for the tobacco. It is an attractive detail that the cord attaching to the sagemono passes through a hole made in the knot of the bamboo stem. The pattern within the bamboo is most attractive and the whole piece appears to be in very good condition for age. It is most aesthetically pleasing to find a matching and complete example and this would be a lovely item to add to any collection of Oriental antiques. Length of sagemono 10.5 ins (25.6cm). Length of inro 3.5 ins (8.8cm). Weight 98 grams. This item appears in my book, "Antique Boxes, Inside and Out" on page 169.
