Cost:from 3,00

Inrō are sets of small cases nested within one another, and were predominantly used to carry official seals and medicine. Inrō were attached to a sash by a toggle (netsuke). These cases first came into fashion in the 16th century and remained a striking accessory of Japanese men's fashion up until the end of the 1800s. Rich in symbolism and not uncommonly incorporating narrative elements, these objects allow for valuable insights into Japanese culture. Meticulously detailed and lovingly crafted, inro were mostly finished in lacquer. These elegant cases remain to this day beloved by collectors.

This small-scale exhibition presents a selection of the Linden Museum's extensive inrō collection in the East Asia Department, and pairs these inrō with a large assortment of netsuke. The catalogue of this collection was made possible through the generous support of the TRUMPF GmbH + Co. KG and the Berthold Leibinger Foundation.

Opening times: Tuesday - Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm / Sunday and Bank Hollidays, 10 am - 6 pm
Closed on 24, 25, 31 December
