Original Japanese WWII Officer's Bone Handle Lacquered Trousse Chopstick and Knife Set

Item Description

Original Items: One Set Only. I.M.A. has acquired a small Japanese WW2 Collection of Swords, and with it came these very interesting Officer's Eating Sets. Each consists of a pair of heavily decorated chopsticks and an accompanying knife similarly decorated. These are all contained in a purpose made carry case (Trousse) all decorated to match.

This is the fourth and final set we have to offer, and it is 11 1/2" overall length. The case is made of wood, with a ray skin shagreen cover, which was covered with lacquer and ground down to produce a lovely "puzzle" type texture. It has a small TANTO style knife with a 7" blade, just over 11" overall, with a bone hilt to match the Case (Trousse) and other instruments. It also contains a pair of slim ivory or bone chopsticks together with a long 5 1/2" tooth pick. A very pleasing set.

We are told this set was removed from a WW2 Japanese Officer together with his Sword by an British Allied Soldier in South East Asia.

Perfect for any Japanese collection!
