19th century wooden netsuke of Daikoku holding his mallet and leaning against a resting water buffalo. Unusual subject, beautifully carved, excellent depiction of the animal’s body bulk, great hairwork on its coat. Signed TOMOTADA on the bottom - the artist is Eirakusai Tomotada of Edo listed on p. 1160 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Wonderful netsuke, rare artist. Length 2 1/8 inches.
