This is an unusual example of a yatate, a case for a fude pen, made from brown to brown-black umimatsu (black coral) and depicting a tree trunk with leaves and two nuts as well as a protruding bulge that was used to attach the pen case to the owner’s belt.

The opening on the upper side with yellow metal. Possibly, this case was used for a pipe, or kiseru, in which it would be called kiseruzutsu instead. This piece is stylistically reminiscent of the Iwami school.
