Japanese okimono of a standing actor in a role of a shojo with a fan in his hand. Shojo are mythical creatures living near the sea, and are particularly fond of sake. Superb quality carving with excellent face and minute detailing - see the fingernails, hair texture and textile patterns. Beautiful warm patina, details highlighted by paint and golden lacquer, in excellent condition. Signed SEIGETSU on inlaid cinnabar plaque on the bottom - the artist is listed in CONTEMPORARY NETSUKE by Miriam Kinsey, p. 236. Height 3 13/16 inches.
