A finely carved stained wood netsuke of a snail crawling on a log section, its translucent body naturalistically delineated. An impactful visual contrast is achieved by the dense, textured wood log and the delicate snail. Mother-of-pearl signature plaque Gyokkei on base. A similar netsuke is illustrated in the MCI. This netsuke is in excellent condition. Length: 2” 19th Century, Japan
