The reverse with a poetic inscription as well as a cyclical date and the artist signature.

Inscription: To reverse, ‘Wang Luyi’ (name of artist), ‘Youzhu’ (artist sobriquet), dated to spring of Dingxu year (corresponding to 1706 or 1766). The poem:

“Returning home, the charcoal smoke is rising;
A single boat approaches the willow’s shade.”

Provenance: Ralph M. Chait Galleries, New York, USA (according to label on base). The collection of Dr. Thomas Navratil, Zurich, Switzerland. Sydney L. Moss Ltd., London, United Kingdom, 22 November 1999. The collection of Teddy Hahn (1933-2012), acquired from the above, and thence by descent to the present owner.

EUR 7,700 (converted and adjusted for inflation at the time of writing), accompanies this lot. The base with an old inventory label, inscribed ‘89’, and further inscribed ‘[…] 1080’. Theodor “Teddy” Hahn was a well-known and respected collector of netsuke and other Asian works of art. After spending time in museums to study the early cultures of the world, finding particular interest in their sculptures, he began collecting, remarking, “I somehow knew it would have a profound influence on my life. How right I was. And how happy I have been.”
