Hirado Porcelain Netsuke of  Monkey God Nodder
Rare porcelain netsuke of a head nodding monkey god dressed as a Sambusa Dancer. As head nods, it tongue moves in and out. The netsuke is made of bisque with a white-blue, green glaze on the hat, and body that is decorated with fan and flowers. Excellent condition, with some original spots where the glaze did not adhere. Circa mid-1800's.
