Guest Book

This is a lovely antique Meiji Japanese carved ivory netsuke depicting a porcelain painter playing with a cat. Finely carved and with great detail throughout, the carver has even gone to the trouble of writing the title of the book to the underside of it where it can't be seen. I love the detail put into these tiny pieces, they are miniature works of art. This netsuke is signed in an inset red cartouche to the underside and is in excellent condition. It measures 4.8cm wide by 3.7cm tall and 3.3cm deep. Worldwide shipping included.
