A RARE IVORY NETSUKE OF A CRAFTSMAN
Unsigned, ivory netsuke
Japan, late 18th to early 19th century, Edo period (1615-1868)

A rather large and rare depiction of a craftsman, wearing an apron adorned with sunflowers, and pushing down on a box. His facial features are finely crafted – he visibly takes joy in his work. His almost naked body is smooth with a very appealing honey patina in the back. Large himotoshi through the underside and back.

HEIGHT 4.2 cm

Provenance: British private collection.
Condition: Some age cracks (one large one through the left hand), imperfections and one foot reattached. Age-related and good condition.

Verkaufspreis:  € 500
