19th century Japanese ojime (slide bead for tightening the cord going from netsuke to inro) in a form of a fruit pit skillfully carved with a smiling traveling Buddhist monk holding a pomegranate in his hand, wide brimmed hat inscribed with character BI (the Sun) on his back. Wonderful whimsical carving with great level of detail, old age lines, very nice mellow brown patina. Height 1 inch.
