A stained and textured boxwood netsuke carved as a toad on the edge of a millstone. Known for his naturalistic representations of toads, Masanao captures this one’s characteristic nuances, contrasting them with the striated surface of the stone. Incised Masanao signature on the base. This netsuke is in very good condition. Width: 1.5” Late 19th Century, Japan
