A wood netsuke depicting Daikoku leaning on his mallet opening one of the striking faces to reveal a rat. A very fine piece of work from the Masayuki line, probably by Hoshinsai Masayuki. The hands, rat and underside of the netsuke are particularly good, along with the dark stain highlighting the lovely natural grain of the wood. The himotoshi is formed by a natural opening between the arms and mallet.
Signed Masayuki with Kakihan
