A stained boxwood netsuke of a wolf with its paw on a recumbent hare, his eyes double inlaid. Both the wolf and hare are rendered boldly with a free-form style that retains the original shape of the wood. This netsuke exhibits a beautiful patina and tactile quality. It is in very good condition with only minor surface wear, commensurate with age and use. Length: 2”, width: 1.5” 18th Century, Japan
