Early 19th century boxwood netsuke of a monkey seated with its head down and turned to its left, supporting a large bamboo shoot on its shoulder. Like any dark object did not photograph well. Excellent carving with clean lines, great thoughtful expression on its face. Large and deep himotoshi (cord opening) in accordance with the habit of the time. Overall beautiful mellow patina from wear. Very clever and charming piece. Height 1 9/16 inches.
