AN IVORY NETSUKE OF JUROJIN WITH STAG
Unsigned, ivory netsuke
Japan, 19th century, Edo period (1615-1868)

Jurojin, Japanese for “long-lived, old man”, is the god of longevity and scholarly success. This work shows him laughing, with the characteristic long beard and elongated head, and holding his mount, a deer, in front of him. The placement and small size of the himotoshi, on the underside, suggest this is a netsuke-okimono.

HEIGHT 5 CM

Condition: Worn patina, good condition
