18th century boxwood netsuke of a crouching wonderfully warty toad. Excellent early carving perfectly capturing the essence of the creature, great sense of volume, extraordinary depiction of its skin on the back, large horn inlaid convex eyes. Beautiful wear and patina with characteristic sheen from 200 years of handling. Length 1 5/8 inches.
