A stained boxwood sashi netsuke of a bearded Chokwaro, legs together and leaning against his gnarled staff. Dressed in simple garb with torso exposed, the immortal hermit carries his double gourd about his shoulder, his ever-available horse housed inside. This classic netsuke is in very good condition with expected gentle wear due to age and lovely patina. Height: 4” 18th Century, Edo Period, Japan
