    Japanese Arts of Daily Life (Gallery 27)

    This gallery features inro (small portable containers) and netsuke (carved toggles used to fasten inro to kimono sashes), two kinds of accessories used by commoners, as well as arms and armament produced for the samurai class. The upper ranks of the samurai, especially during the peaceful Edo period (1615–1868), displayed their power and wealth through their taste for splendor, particularly in such items. Made of luxurious materials, these pieces are characterized by both refinement and spectacle, evident in their design and technical virtuosity.
