A boxwood netsuke of a tigress with horn-inlaid eyes and bold striping lovingly regarding her playful cub. For this finely-rendered netsuke, the renowned artist focused upon both the protective mother’s strong physique and calm and bemused face. Signature plaque of Masayoshi (Sato Masayoshi, 1819-1865.) Provenance: Scott Meredith collection. Great patina and excellent condition for this charming netsuke. Nagoya, Japan. Mid 19th Century
