A delightful stained boxwood netsuke carved as a clam catcher. The youngster, in kimono and rolled-up sleeves, is bent on one knee, proudly displaying his bountiful catch, a basket full of clams. Fine incised work enhances the realism of the piece. Unsigned, and in very good condition. Height: 2” Late 19th Century, Japan
