This is charming Netsuke, hand-carved during the 19th century in Japan, that depicts a Seated Man, who is beating on a Drum, while stroking his long beard with his left hand. Use and handling has given this piece a nice mwllow patina and a smooth and lustrous surface. It feels very nice to the touch. It is signed in what appears as Hiragana script, but, we are not able to interpret its meaning. It is in excellent preserved condition. It measures 1.25 inches (3.2cm) wide, 1.62 inches (4.1cm) long, and 1.20 inches (3.0cm) tall.
