An exquisite, stained wooden netsuke of a rare subject – a seated baby monkey finely carved with incised fur, sucking on his thumb. This most unusual netsuke emphasizes the subject’s position - portraying the precious baby monkey as it tucks its paw underneath him, his little legs folded for extra comfort. Double inlaid amber eyes and natural himotoshi for added effect. Excellent patina and condition. Height: 1.5” 19th Century, Japan
