Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
A substantial ivory screen, carved in relief with a scene of samurai warriors in battle. To the upper left one samurai raises his sword, whilst beneath him two foes lie vanquished. To the bottom right, two further warriors approach, one brandishing a naginata - a traditional Japanese pole weapon. Beneath this scene are two panels depicting the accoutrement of the Samurai. To the reverse is a mountainous landscape with pine trees and a figure approaching a small hamlet, above a scene of waves crashing against rocks. With a red stained seal containing a signature.
