A good handful of an old wood netsuke depicting a hatching tengu. Larger than most depictions of this subject this pleasing old tengu has both hands placed on the front of the egg as it pulls itself free. To the rear its large wings nearly completely free sit just above the himotoshi.
Signed to the rear, Keishi or possibly Kagetomo
Late 18th century
