A delicate ebony netsuke of a lotus leaf with a small frog perched on top. The panels of the leaf are strongly defined, with the centre of each panel covered in fine hairwork. Across the top is a section well carved to appear rotten. The centre of the leaf is completely hollow. The smooth frog contrasts nicely with the textured leaf.
The himotoshi is formed by a single hole to the underside, with the knot able to be concealed within the inside the leaf.
First half of the 19th century
