A GROTESQUE IVORY NETSUKE OFA KABUKI ACTOR
Unsigned
Japan, 18th century, Edo period (1615-1868)

The kabuki actor is standing in a dancing posture, with one leg raised above the other, wearing an eboshi and holding two mallets next to his face, on which he wears a grotesque mask from a Kabuki play. The apron is carved in relief with a dragon, with inlaid eyes, whose expression is amusingly very much like that of the mask. Good patina and large himotoshi in the back.

HEIGHT 8 cm

Condition: Very good condition with good patina.
Provenance: Luxembourg private collection.
