Excellent carving perfectly showing the bulk of the animal, beautiful flow to its mane and tail, great depiction of its coat, superb staining and patina. Signed MASAMARU on the bottom - this rare Nagoya artist is listed on p. 713 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Extraordinary sculpture, formerly in Philip Schneider collection. Height 1 3/16 inches.
