This is an excellent 19th Century Japanese Netsuke depicting a Woman Pounding Cloth with her child by her side who is playing with a turtle. Signed Ryuchin (Gyokuhosai), who, according to Meinertzhagen (MCI Index), 'was among the most brilliant netsuke carvers of his period'. Excellent composition with very fine detail, and a great example of this carver's work. A reference to Ryuchin's and his signature may be found on page 888 of Lazarnick's 'Netsuke and Inro Artists and How to Read their Signatures.
