Here is a lovely wood and lacquer netsuke modeled as a mandarin duck. Its silver-gray lacquered body, with exquisitely carved and incised details for the plumage, is gold lacquered for the wings and heightened by the use of red lacquer for the beak and legs. The subject of "mandarin duck" is associated with conjugal fidelity, and often depicted in all genre of East Asian art. This netsuke is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Signed KAJIKAWA saku on the nether portion of the duck. 18th/19th Century, Japan
