Any ideas guys on this gorgeous 7 1/2" high bamboo?, mother of pearl and pewter caddy/ flask? Are we talking Imperial perhaps? Thank you! David.

Dear David,
I'm sorry to be the bringer of bad news, but it looks to me like a bit of modern chinese tat, especially the cartouche in the centre is a big giveaway, if not the body which is a resinous mass.But I could be wrong.
