A black lacquered katana-kake Samurai sword stand inlayed all over with mother of pearl forming a Chinese literati scene, birds in a plum tree, butterflies and scrolling vines. It is 50 x 18.5 x 37.5 cm (19-3/4 x 7-1/4 x 15 inches). Meiji period, 19th to early 20th century. This is an antique, and has been used, there are minor losses typical of age but nothing overtly detrimental and the lacquer is stable.
