Late Meiji (1890s to 1912) Japanese ceramic netsuke representing a theatrical mask from a Noh play - most probably that of O-Beshimi (see NETSUKE MASKS by Bushell, plates 114-115). Crisp detailing, wonderful face, white enamel highlights, overall in excellent condition. Impressed with seal ONKO on the back - the piece was made by a member of the Shimizu family producing Onko wares in Akasaka, Gifu Prefecture, most probably by Shimizu Sekisen I. Height 1 5/8 inches.
