19th century wooden netsuke of two heads of reishi fungus (Fungus of Immortality) issuing from the same stem. Superbly carved elegant piece in Japanese taste, beautiful rhythm to the ridges of the fungus, wonderful wear and superb patina consistent with age, in excellent condition. Himotoshi is formed by the stem. Signed MASAYOSHI for Sato Masayoshi on the bottom - this excellent artist is listed on p. 742 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Fantastic netsuke by the master carver. Length 1 1/2 inches.
