19th century netsuke of one seated and one standing courtiers, the latter holding a boy at his shoulder. All are wearing formal headgear, and most probably the boy represents a young Emperor or a hero. Superbly carved, great faces, elaborate hair and clothing arrangement and excellent textile patterns. Wonderful wear consistent with age. Signed CHUICHI on the bottom - the artist is listed on p. 348 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Height 1 13/16 inches.
