A charming boxwood netsuke intricately carved as a blossoming flower attached to its leafy stem. The interior of the blossom contains an unexpected surprise- a bright-eyed monkey perched upon a stack of chestnuts. The creature’s eyes inlaid with jet, with fine incised lines and texturing highlighting its distinctive features. This unique netsuke is in very good condition with fine patina. Length: 2”, height: 1.25” 19th century, Japan
