    Provenance: an English private collection.

    Mochizuki Hanzan (fl.circa 1743-1790), was the principle follower of Ogawa Haritsu or Ritsuo (1663-1747) and styled himself Haritsu II, although he was neither his son nor his pupil. He continued his Master's innovative style of inlay in strongly contrasting materials often on a plain wood ground.
