Netsuke of a sitting courtier (recognizable by his tall hat) wearing formal garments and holding an open fan in his hands. Extremely well carved, expert polychrome decoration, wonderful level of detail, perfectly captured facial expression. Signed RYOSEI on the bottom - this very distinct carver is discussed in CONTEMPORARY NETSUKE by Miriam Kinsey, p. 225. Height 1 11/16 inches.
