19th century netsuke of a seated monkey holding a branch with 2 peaches in its hands. Excellent quality carving - see its thoughtful face, finely incised coat and joints of its fingers. The eyes are inlaid with dark horn. Beautiful wear and patina, himotoshi formed by a natural opening in the carving. Signed OKATOMO in rectangular reserve on on the bottom - for information on this superb artist see NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick, p. 850. Excellent sculpture, great netsuke. Height 1 1/8 inches.
