A wood netsuke realistically modeled as a pumpkin. The deep carving for the grooves along the lobes of this autumnal vegetable and its chiseled effects provide wonderful texture to the beauty of the two-toned wood.(From among the many themes that inspired netsuke carvers, love of nature is a predominate one. Endowed with a religion that encouraged the appreciation of nature, Japanese netsuke carvers faithfully depicted nature - illustrating both its perfection and decay. This wood netsuke is in excellent conditionwith no problems. 19th Century, Japan
