19th century staghorn ojime (slide bead for tightening the cord going from netsuke to inro) carved as a head of an octopus with thoroughly useless scarf tied around its forehead (usually those scarves are used by workmen to keep the sweat out of their eyes). Very nice carving, natural imperfections in staghorn, beautiful patina, in great condition, signed HAKUSHO on the back. Length 13/16 inches.
