Japanese wooden sculpture of seated man, dated 1823

Small sculpture of a bald headed man sitting in the manner of a rakan, his long garment hanging open at the chest. His face grim, the hands tucked away in the sleeves of his garment. Inscription in black ink on the bottom, giving the date of Bunsei 6 (1823) and indicating the maker as ‘made by the old man Kenko himself’. Boxwood, the eyes of reverse painted glass, possibly crystal. Japan. Very nice piece of mingei carving.
Height 6 inches (15 cm).
Beautiful patina, minimal worm damage on lower back and bottom, minimal traces of usage.
