Netsuke - Chokaro Sennin

Sold

A wood netsuke depicting Chokaro Sennin, stood in typical fashion with his large gourd slung over his shoulder holding the cord with both hands. His enlarged head looks almost like a caricature. The himotoshi to the rear looks like it was added later. I believe the originally it was intended to be strung through the opening under the arms, or possibly around the figure’s neck under the beard, which would explain the enlarged head.

9.2cm

Circa 1800

Unsigned
