An ivory two-part manju style netsuke. A stylised bat is set within an octagon against a background of large diamonds that have been quartered into four smaller diamonds. To the reverse two smaller panels with auspicious objects against a background of stylised blossoms and overlapping triangles. The linework of the panels exact and the bat carved with a real flow and freedom makes for a very interesting manju. The surface with a dark yellow stain polished to a brilliant finish.
Unsigned - Asakusa region
