An amusing wood netsuke of an Okame mask carved with characteristic cheerful face, plump cheeks, perky nose and warm smile and eyes. The renowned netsuke-shi Shumin II signature is incised on the reverse. This fine netsuke is in excellent condition with only slight wear due to age and use. (The netsuke artist, Shumin II, was the son of the celebrated netsuke-shi Shumin I from the Kansei region who also famously carved the goddess Okame.) Length: 2.25” Meiji Period, Japan
