Somewhat unusual 19th century marine tusk netsuke in naturally curved rectangular shape with extraordinary fine engraving of pine saplings growing among low grass, and a distant mountain on the background. Elegant piece in Japanese taste, superb engraving and inking to the last line. The back shows natural outed skin of a tusk, old age lines, excellent patina. Length 1 7/8 inches.
