Here are some information from the Wrangham book „The Index of Inro Artists“.

And additional from Japanese Lacquer, 1600-1900 by Andrew J. Pekarik:

„Onko Chokan Nagasato, one of a number of lacquer carvers in the eighteenth century who used the rather odd name Onko Chokan. The family name, Onko, is the first half of a famous saying from the Confucian Analects: "By appreciating the old understand the new" (onko chishin ). Presumably, the family viewed themselves as the preservers of an authentic Chinese tradition of lacquer carving.“

Unfortunately I did not find a comparison for the fourth Kanji, perhaps bad written or a further name. Is there a image of the signature in the Hiroko book Dave?

Rei (98) to me;
and the third: Tan (183)

The first one looks like 延令舟 En rei shu

The second... 万(互)念舟 Man/Ban(Go) nen shu perhaps.

Size is something.

that the name of a medicine Enreitan a long life pill which contained 14 ingredients. The only study on the subject of the medicines found in Inro was written by my friend Doctor Alain Briot and published in the Bulletin de l'association Franco-Japonaise n°52 April 1996
