So I popped in to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery recently and found these awesome objects. Coming from a culture which has always had pockets I find the level of detail in these Japanese carry pouches, called Inro, to be fascinating.  Victorian/Edwardian ladies used to have something similar to carry perfume with them but ours were traditionally made of metal I believe. 
There is an example of the English version on my G+ account here:  found in Nottingham City Castle, Museum and Gallery.  I seem to have great intrigue for tiny carry-able objects.
