19th century netsuke carved as a woven basket filled with kuwai (edible arrowhead bulbs) and bamboo shoots. Superb clever carving in Japanese taste, amazingly realistic, excellent detailing, beautiful staining, wonderful patina. Signed MEIICHI (alternative reading is Akikazu) on the bottom. Great elegant netsuke. Length 1 5/16 inches.
