A vivid representation of a seated shishimai dancer, his legs wrapped around a drum. Drumstick in one hand, the boy dancer lifts the shishi mask with one hand revealing his finely-carved face and horn- inlaid eyes. Great attention to detail makes this netsuke an important contribution to any collection. This netsuke is in very good condition. Multi-character signature and seal on base. Height: 1.25” 19th Century, Japan
