19th century wooden netsuke of a resting hen, its feet tucked beneath it. Clever design capturing the essence of the bird, nicely fat, beautifully carved face and feathers, himotoshi is formed by one of its feet, wonderful wear and patina. Signed NAOMASA on one bottom - the artist is listed in NETSUKE by Neil Davey (p. 502, number 1800). Length 1 5/16 inches.
