It have very handsome look that the carving is deep.
In addition, it have one more interesting thing, as for this work, the whole seemed to be covered with red lacquer. I thought it is rust. But it isn't rust but red lacquer. Probably it was produced as a red mamushi at the time.
The maker is Muneyoshi of the Tomiki family(Takase Kozan studio). He is good at making snake. And there were many works. But I haven't seen such a rare lacquer work.

Oshin worked in Kyoto and was one of the finest artists creating burl wood okimono, trays and scepters for sencha tea ceremony. His work generally reveals a subject hidden in a natural form, such as a piece of burl wood, and the artist achieves a perfect harmony between the natural and the artificial, carved aspects. The world of sencha tea enjoyed a great flowering from the beginning of the Meiji era until the Pacific War. In this tradition, Oshin's work stands out as one of the most brilliant. He moved with his wife to Kita-Kyushu in the 1940s, when the destruction of war took with it the world that had supported his work. His last years were spent living on the charity of friends in exchange for pieces of his art.

Tanaka Muneyoshi is a craftman of Takase Kozan studio. He was good at making Articulated iron figures of animals(Jizai okimono). Especially dynamic iron works compared to other craftman in Kozan studio.
This work weights very heavy. But is built up by hammering. It needs a massive power. I think it is a work to be able to make only in his youth.
He is famous for Jizai Okimono. And also this work can be maved by iron wheels. So, we can say it is a JIzai Okimono too.
