19th century wooden netsuke in manju (rice cake) shape carved on the front in low relief with a paper lantern with inscription, all on a textured ground. Elegant design in Japanese taste, dark fruitwood with great quality crisp carving, excellent wear consistent with age, beautiful mellow patina. There is an inscription on the back, may include signature, but I have not been able to read it. Two parts fit precisely, perfect netsuke shape. Comes from Jack Mang Collection. Diameter 1 9/16 inches.
