This ivory manju netsuke has been meticulously carved to represent two doves, with inlaid horn eyes, resting on an old straw hat. The hat has a millet plant growing through it. The underside shows the twine hat fasteners curling around a Japanese script. The curled twine forms the himotoshi. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration.
