A three lobed family crest in gold decorates the 19 lacquered items in this large set of Edo period yome-iri-dogu, traditional items which would have gone with a bride to her new home. Yome-iri-dogu is a general term for household items that women prepare for a new life when they get married. In this case it is the furnishings for the bride’s boudoir and consists of a large water basin, a spouted suichu water container, a smaller basin, a towel rack, a covered bowl with stand, a drawered cabinet, a folding mirror stand, two mirror boxes, a rectangular box with inner tray, a stacking box, and various small containers for cosmetics. All are decorated with the family crest, and most have their original wooden storage boxes. A set so complete such as this is highly unusual, and would have belonged to a powerful samurai or wealthy family. These are genuine, full sized, not for a doll display.
