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

#EEIN09

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 folklore, dragons are water deities, wingless and serpant-like. 

The inro in this set is adorned with a carved, dragon in water 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 also adorned with dragon carvings and measure 3/4" and 1 1/4" long, respectively.  The whole set, with cord, is 8" long.
