Early 19th century boxwood netsuke of an alert kirin sitting on oval base with its head raised, flames licking the sides of his body. Great inquisitive face, wonderful depiction of its tail and bumpy spine, eyes are inlaid with bronze. Fantastic sheen from wear, superb patina, very pleasant to hold. Comes from Jack Mang Collection. For a kirin carved by the same hand see Sotheby’s Bushell sale catalog of March 21, 2000, lot 136. Height 1 9/16 inches.
