18c netsuke TOAD with young by SHUGETSU
18th century wooden netsuke of a wonderfully warty frog with a young on its back. Excellent early carving with great sense of volume, dense dark hardwood, beautiful wear and patina with characteristic sheen. Old losses to its front paws digits, right side of its face and young’s front right paw, somehow do not take away from the sculpture. Signed SHUGETSU (for Hogen Shugetsu) on the bottom - this excellent artist is listed on p. 986 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Length 2 inches.
