19th century staghorn ojime (slide bead for tightening the cord going from netsuke to inro) in a form of two theatrical masks of Hyottoko (perplexed peasant) and Fox the trickster. This pairing must be a reference to a particular Japanese play. Superb quality carving, excellent faces, great patina, black and red ink highlights. Height 11/16 inches.
