19th C. JAPANESE WOOD NETSUKE OF ONI
SOLD,Thanks

This unusual 19th century Japanese wood netsuke ¡°Oni hiding in the box¡± is 1 ¼ inches tall and 1 inch wide. It depicts an Oni hiding his head and upper body in a wood box (or a container for rice). He peeps through from a hole while his right arm sticks out from the other hole. There are two small kernels of rice on his bony back. A third kernel which should be on the side of the box is missing. The workmanship is superb. It is carved from unknown hard wood and is not signed. Aside from the missing kernel of rice, it is in excellent condition.
