Good size late 18th to early 19th century boxwood netsuke of Gama Sennin standing Gama Sennin leaning on a long staff, wearing a leaf cape while his constant companion - a magic toad - climbs about on his shoulders. Excellent quality early carving with great austere face, cleverly designed himotoshi goung through the slevves on the back, well balanced - stands on its own on flat surface. Beautiful warm patina, great feel of age to the piece. Old well done repair to the right side of his right foot. Height 3 7/8 inches (10.1 cm)
