A boxwood netsuke in the form of a wonderful and careful study of a macaque, his two hind feet folded. In one hand he grasps a leafy grape vine, supporting this arm’s weight with his other hand. His body is finely incised to denote a well groomed coat, aesthetic staining and amber-inlaid eyes. Signed Mitsukazu (Koichi) on nether side. This fine netsuke is in excellent condition. Height: 1.5”, width: 1.25” 19th Century, Japan
