A fine quality, signed kiseruzutsu (pipe holder) well carved with decoration of dragon in clouds. Looks like boxwood. Three old soft metal "staple" repairs along a stress crack (adds to the history and character of the piece). A good quality soft metal and bamboo pipe is included and nicely fitting (no doubt the original). Keyfret decoration adorns the soft metal pipe ends. Length of the kiseruzutsu is 11 inches. Late Edo period, 19th century.
