Rustic naturalism and delicate artistry come together in this 19th century Japanese antique multi-media pipe set. A pressed horn, tsutsu (pipe case) is intricately carved with symmetrical precision that reveals a pattern similar to a finely woven basket. The tsutsu is bonded with two weighted brass bands. The pipe (kiseru) is in a golden hued bamboo offset by brass fittings with silver gilt. A full round ivory ojime is in counterpoint to a finely carved wooden netsuke of a resting bull and calf. The bullís eyes are delicate insets of black coral that glisten and beckon with life. Two himotoshi are on the side of the bull and a ivory reserved signature is inset into the bullís back haunch. A rustic circular container with fine grain and the asymmetry of wabi-sabi can hold loose tobacco and is marked on its lid by an interpretive grass script. In excellent condition the tonkotsu shows the mark of many hands, a pleasured usage through time. (SD)
