19th century staghorn/bone netsuke turned in a shape of hollow double gourd, and pierced and carved on the outside with geometric designs. Himotoshi (cord openings) are formed by 2 longer slots in the middle part of the netsuke. Porous centers of stag antler on both ends are plugged as is usual in such pieces, and plugs are carved as part of the netsuke. Simple honest carving, nice patina, overall in very good condition. Height 1 7/8 inches.
