Iwashiro, Edo Period, 19th century
One side finely carved with a large turtle and the other with a turtle with cub.
The inner compartments are in black roiro lacquer.
Hidari Issan is best known for his carvings of turtles and produced a number of turtle-shaped netsuke and inro. The same subject but in relief, as in this case, is quite rare.
