A charming wood netsuke of a trio of playful puppies stacked one upon the other. Their eyes are inlaid with jet, the bodies softly modeled. Dogs are not only the eleventh Chinese zodiac sign, but also are honored as deities in Japanese folklore. This lovely netsuke is in excellent condition with very good patina. 19th Century, Japan
