Six case inro with trees and waterfalls

19th century

Signed: Shōryusai

One side with a cherry tree while the other one with a maple tree; both with a waterfall in the background.  The two trees are an evident allusion to Spring and Autumn. 

The ground is in togidashi maki-e, typical technique for this artist, while trees and flowers are in hiramaki-e. The inro comes with a box-shaped netsuke (hako-netsuke) decorated with a maple tree branch.
