A unique stained boxwood netsuke of an emaciated oni with jet-inlaid eyes sitting cross-legged and proudly displaying a stolen tama. This rare netsuke perfectly captures the oni’s expression as he gloats at his devious success. This remarkable carving is unsigned, the workmanship and concept extraordinary. It is in excellent condition with rich patina. Height: 1.5” Circa 1800, Japan
