    Slightly lenticular; in low relief and rich iroye incrustation are two curly-haired "foreigners" standing, one wearing a sword with cock's-head pommel and carrying a basket, the other carrying a nioi (jui) sceptre; both wear rich jewellery; a small tiger in shibuichi is at their feet, and near by are rocks with a waterfall, continued at the back, where a small tree is also seen; edge almost covered with squares of gold nunome. Signed in a gold-inlaid seal partly cut away: Toshiyuki [Japanese text]. (Okamoto Naoshige, d.1780.)
