19th century wooden netsuke of a slightly drunk dancer with a fan in his hand. Wood is lacquered in Negoro style - red (or golden brown) lacquer over black, so as it wears the black and then wood start showing. Superbly captured facial expression, beautifully worn, really nice feel of age to the piece. For a very similar example see Bushell’s NETSUKE FAMILIAR AND UNFAMILIAR, p. 162, number 396. Height 2 inches.
