19th century netsuke of a seated peasant woman having a snack as she takes a break from carrying a huge bag on her back. Nicely carved, wonderful face, beautifully carved and etched textile patterns. Old smoothed loss to the front of her right foot (does not take away from the sculptural quality of the piece), beautiful patina consistent with age. Signed RYOMIN on the bottom - the artist is Ono Ryomin III listed on p. 885 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Length 1 5/8 inches.
