RARE UNUSUAL TWO-PIECE ANTIQUE JAPANESE 19th C. MEIJI PERIOD STAGHORN PIPE CASE (KISERUZUTSU) WITH A FLOWERING TREE BRANCH UNDER A STARRY SKY DESIGN

 

LOW MINIMUM PRICE, NO RESERVE!

 

I am offering for sale one more item from my sagemono collection.

 

Description: An old traditional Japanese tobacco pipe case known as kiseruzutsu, of musô-zutsu variety (telescoping two-piece tsutsu), made of nicely textured smooth-polished staghorn (deer antler). This is a rare & unusual pipe case since most staghorn cases are one-piece due to limitations of the material, very few of them are two-piece like this one.

 

The outer piece has a well-carved low-relief design of a flowering tree branch surrounded by multiple drilled-out star shapes, picturing a tree on a starry night. The inner piece fits nice & tight in the outer piece. I think one can add a blade and modify this into a unique letter opener!

 

Est. age: c. 1870-1900 / Meiji Period.

 

Materials:  polished black material, possibly pressed ox horn or some early type of plastic.

 

Dimensions: outer piece: 162 x 24 x 22 mm (~ 6.5 x 1.0 x 0.8 in); inner piece: 97 x 21 x 15 mm (~ 3.8 x 0.8 x 0.6 in); length fully closed 210 mm (~8.3 in); total weight: 55 gr (~1.9 oz).

 

Condition:  excellent; nice patina, no visible damage or repairs.

 

Purchased: in 2010 from Sensui Antiques in Surrey, England.

 

Payment & Delivery Terms.

 

Payment via Paypal only; must be received within 2 days of auction end.

 

Shipping is flat $8 by USPS Priority Mail anywhere in the USA with delivery confirmation. I can ship internationally to just about anywhere; it should cost no more than $10-12 to most destinations by air mail; will quote actual cost to the winner.  

 

I guarantee that the item is as described. I will gladly answer any questions before the end of the auction, but once the item is sold there are no returns or refunds. Shipping insurance covers damage or loss while in transit. Bidding constitutes acceptance of these terms.

 

Good luck and thanks for bidding!
