Description

Ie-Tsuto by IIZUKA Rōkansai (1890-1958)

The word “tsuto” is an archaic and elegant poetic name for a cocoon-like parcel which is wrapped with straws etc, but has come to refer to a souvenir or gift.

The word “Ie” means home.

This hanakago can be dated circa 1938 -1945.

In terms of his signature on the hakogaki, the hand-writing is rather withered/ very mature -- indicating its dating from the later period of the artist.

Signed "Rōkansai saku" [made by Rōkansai]
