Early 19th century netsuke of a standing oni (mischievous little demon) about to have a bit of a feast: he is holding a sake bottle in one hand and supporting a huge fish on his shoulders tied with a straw rope. Excellent face with perfectly captured expression of happy anticipation, expertly stained, beautiful wear and patina. Height 1 3/4 inches.
