#ACC109 A JAPANESE WOOD POWDER FLASK

19th Century

This flask is humorously carved on both sides with the face of an ‘oni’ (demon). The teeth and eyes are inlaid with bone and ebony.

One bone horn has a ‘himotoshi’ (hole through which to pass a cord). The tip of the other horncan be removed and acts as a measure for pouring gun powder.

Height: approximately 15cm
