Unusual 19th century Hirado Japanese porcelain brushrest in a shape of a karako (Chinese boy) lying on his stomach with his head and feet raised, his head is moveable. Wonderful modeling with incised details, excellent face, beautiful glaze, unglazed bottom, in great condition (no chips, cracks or repairs), very pleasant to the touch. Typical Hirado underglaze blue highlights, rich cobalt firing beautiful gray/brown in saturation areas, brown glaze on his pants. Very nice object for scholar’s desk. Length 3 3/16 inches.
