An exceptional stained boxwood netsuke of a seated hare, one leg beneath him. The body is finely modeled and accented with piebald patches in sumi-e, and the fur realistically rendered, eyes inlaid with amber. The overall effect is both natural and different from other netsuke of seated hares. The noted Masakatsu signature can be found on hind leg. ( Masakatsu, a Yamada school artist and according to Reikichi, his “work was fine and beautiful.”) This charming netsuke is in excellent condition. Height: 1”; length: 1.75” 19th Century, Japan
