A kagamibuta-style netsuke. Unusually, both the bowl and plate in stag with extensive open work. A rain dragon (ama-ryu) twists its way around a tablet that also includes a Buddhist fly whisk (hosssu), reishi fungi, and daffodil (suisen). The table in the centre is signed “Fusai”, a netsuke carver from Asakusa. To the verso, a flower with five petals sits within the centre of a pentagon.
A very fine patina, the surface of the bowl has developed a beautiful colour and interesting texture.
Signed to the front – Fusai
Width – 4cm
Depth – 1.7cm
