19th century wooden netsuke of an alert beak-nosed frog. Unusual animal in netsuke, excellent rendition of its bumpy skin, wonderful posture, great facial expression. Pupils of its eyes are lacquered. Very beautiful light staining, great patina. Signed SHUKO on its belly - the artist is listed on p. 991 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Excellent netsuke by rare master carver. Length 1 7/8 inches.
