Early 19th century boxwood netsuke carved as a seated snarling tiger. Great face with somewhat surprised expression, wonderful depiction of its body bulk, powerful paws, beautiful rhythm to the flow of the tail. Himotoshi (cord hole) is formed by natural opening between the feet and the body of the animal. Double inlaid eyes with dark horn pupils, beautiful patina, wear to the front of the face. Very good early sculpture. Height 1 7/16 inches.
