19th century wooden netsuke of hibachi (portable charcoal-burning brazier) on 3 low legs and filled with short pieces of wood and charcoals. Unusual subject in Japanese taste, perfectly caught “wabi-sabi” essence of the object with its elegant simplicity. Beautiful carving, wonderful depiction of wood structures in the logs. Beautiful wear and patina. Signed SHOJUKEN MASATOMO on the bottom - for information on this rare artist see NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick, p. 734. Excellent and unusual netsuke by the master carver. Length 1 1/2 inches.
