AN IVORY NETSUKE OF A STAG ON BASE BY RANSEN
By Ransen, ivory netsuke
Japan, Kyoto, late 19th century

A naturalistic and sensitively crafted depiction of a stag carved from attractively stained ivory, the fur naturalistically rendered with many spots. The deer has its head titled backwards and is looking downwards with beautifully double-inlaid eyes in black and pale-translucent horn. Its body is contorted and supported on finely carved thin legs. The entire composition is set on a stippled base, smooth on the underside where also the two small himotoshi are located as well as the signature RANSEN 蘭川 in a rounded reserve. School of Hogen Ranten of Kyoto.

HEIGHT 3.7 cm

Provenance: British collection.
Condition: Very good condition, four age cracks through the body and some wear to the black coloring across the spine.
