The Inrō Handbook
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Inr? are tiny nested boxes, held together by cords and suspended from the obi, or sash, with the aid of netsuke. Originally used simply for carrying small items, these objects are now much sought-after works of Japanese miniature art. Written for the collector of inr? and netsuke, this volume provides detailed information about their materials, makers’ techniques and styles in a richly illustrated study of 108 fine inr? and their accompanying netsuke, and 18 small lacquer boxes.
