Early 19th century netsuke of standing Shoki (Demon Queller) with his sword out, leaning over a twisted pine tree while terrified oni (little mischievous demon) is hiding inside it. Fantastic quality carving down to the last detail - see Shoki’s fierce face, wild flying hair of both characters and delicately carved pine clusters. Clever staining, nice wear consistent with age, beautiful patina. Superb netsuke. Length 1 7/16 inches.
