18th century netsuke carved as a reclining goat - one of the 12 Zodiac animals, its feet bent underneath it and its head turned back. Excellent carving conveying the essence of the creature’s character, unusually fat, superb rendition of fluffy strands of its fur, eyes are inlaid with black horn. Beautiful wear and exceptional honey colored patina. Wonderful sculpture. Length 1 1/2 inches.
