19th century netsuke of a turtle on a pile of lotus plant parts consisting of an open leaf, curled leaf, a bud and a fruit with seeds. Excellent carving in Japanese taste, fantastic detailing (see the patterns on the carapace and a curled leaf, great patina. Signed GYOKUHO on the bottom - the artist is particularly known for that kind of work and is discussed on p. 424 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Superb netsuke. Length 1 3/8 inches.
