Mirror Case

...............  ニホンの美しいものを、淡々と、恣に。 ...............

Mirror case - Knight & Lady playing chess. Ivory, 14th-century Paris. Now in the V & A, London. The game of chess represented both love and war and appears in many of medieval romances, including the story of Tristan & Iseult. The 3 finest examples, of which this is one, come from the same Paris atelier, & perhaps the same carver. The 2 others are in Cleveland and the Louvre.
