This is a nicely detailed, hand-carved Wood Netsuke depicting a couple of Toads engaged in an intense Wrestling pose on top of a mushroom cap. Action oriented figure with very good symmetry and form. Signed in Hiragana script: Goro, an unregistered artist, who may have worked during the 19th century or earlier, when Hiragana script was used the most. Netsuke measures 1.30 inches (3.3cm) in diameter - at the base (mushroom cap), and 1.86 inches (4.8cm) tall. It is in excellent conditon, as may be seen in the posted photos.
