19th century netsuke of cut vegetables, tofu and rice cakes sitting inside a wooden pan with handle. Does not photograph well. Superb elegant design in Japanese taste with perfectly captured mood of happy anticipation of a good meal, excellent carving, beautiful patina. Signed MITSUHIRO on the bottom of the pan. For a lengthy discussion of this superb first rate artist see NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick, page 775. Clever and unusual object by the master carver. Length 2 1/8 inches.
