Price on request.
A fine Nagoya school netsuke by Ikko. An adult rat enjoys a head of millet as its young clambers across its back. The young rat holds affectionately onto the ear of the adult with one claw. The hair work of both finely incised and both sets of eyes are inlaid, the adult’s in dark horn and the young’s in a translucent yellow.
Several natural openings between the adult rat’s body and limbs would make for a suitable himotoshi.
Second half of the 19th century
Signed, Ikko (Nagoya school)
