19th century Asakusa school staghorn netsuke of obihasami type carved with character KEI meaning LAW. The hooks at the top and bottom of the piece go around the edges of obi - a sash holding a kimono. Excellent clever and subtle piece typical of Asakusa school, warm patina, darker porous areas as is usual with staghorn. Signed MASAYUKI in square reserve on the back - the artist is listed on p. 747 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Length 4 inches.
