A Japanese elegant, almost entirely shiny, black three case inro with fine, somewhat lighter naturally occurring stripes, when held up to a concentrated light, the color turns red and has dark stripes, engraved and lightly gilded decoration. On the front is a samurai warrior in armour on a horse carrying a tachi and holding a bow with upward-curving kuwagata on his helmet, these are also on the back of the inro along with the helmet, which is now decorated with a dragon’s head. On the bottom of the inro, inside an oval field, is the signature Ka-sho in red. Together with a horn netsuke of a curled up hores. Some signs of aging, but in good condition on the whole.
