A stained wood netsuke of a recumbent boar with an exaggerated snout and legs folded neatly beneath him. The boar, a classic subject, was particularly beloved by Nagoya carvers. This charming netsuke is in excellent condition and signed Masatoshi. ( For a remarkably similar netsuke by Masatamo, also of Nagoya, see Bushell’s “Wonderful World of Netsuke”, page 22.) Length: 1.75” 19th Century, Japan
