Inro Set Boxwood Carving Box w/Mermaids 2 1/2" long

#EEIN07

Charming hand-carved boxwood inro set with netsuke and ojime beads, inspired by antique Japanese inro.   An inro is a container that hangs from the belt to hold small items because traditional Japanese clothing had no pockets. 

The toggle bead which hangs above the inro box is called a netsuke bead, and the bead which slides up and down the cord to hold the box shut is an ojime.  The master-carvers who make these sets spend many hours carving each one. 

The characters represented on these sets are derived from Asian folktales.  In Japanese, there is a mythological creature called the Ningyo, or mermaid.

The inro in this set is adorned with a carved mermaid on each side.  It consists of a stack of two small, nested boxes, and measures 2 1/2" long.  The ojime and netsuke beads are sleeping mermaids and measure 3/4" and 1 1/4" long, respectively.  The whole set, with cord, is 7 1/2" long.
