Unusual late Meiji - early Taisho ceramic netsuke in a shape of a cloth toy of Daruma - the founder of Zen Buddhism. Wonderfully designed, good quality modeling, great depiction on the soft body of the doll with creases, and sagging to one side. Stamped with potter’s seal on the bottom, some wear to paint and chipping to his eyebrows. Height 1 1/4 inches.
