19th century So school wooden netsuke of 2 South Sea islanders taking a short rest from hauling a huge branch of coral encrusted with barnacles. Excellent detailed carving, fantastic faces with expressions of strained concentration on the task. Encrustations on the coral are inlaid with horn and staghorn, the rope is twisted metal wire. Superb sculpture by a master carver. Length 1 5/8 inches.
