A charming stained boxwood netsuke of a Chajin (tea expert) asleep at the tea mill. The stylized rendition of this beloved netsuke theme is carved with gentle sloping lines and elegant incised facial features. (Netsuke carvers were observers of daily life in Japan and often made social comments in a humorous manner.) This netsuke is beautifully modeled with gentle wear, commensurate with age and use. Length: 1.5”, height: 1.25” Early 19th Century, Japan
