This is a lovely and unusual antique Meiji period ivory netsuke of a monkey holding a monocle in one hand and grasping a kiseru and tobacco pouch in the other. Expertly carved with lovely detailing picked out in black. The patterning to his robe is particularly fine as is his fur. Signed to the base and in very good condition with one age line to the side of his hat and another to the base. Measures 6.7cm tall by 4.5cm wide by 3cm deep. Worldwide shipping included.
