A warm coloured ivory netsuke depicting a hatching tengu. The tengu’s claws grip the broken edge of the shell, his head raised slightly as if from the strain of pulling himself out of the egg and into the world. The eyes are inlaid in dark horn. The netsuke is signed Hidemasa but the style of the masa kanji makes it difficult to place it with either of the main artists from this school.
Signed – Hidemasa
Length – 3.5cm
Height – 2.5cm
