Very unusual 19th century Japanese tsuishu (cinnabar lacquer) netsuke in rectangular slab shape carved on both sides with different landscapes in scholar’s taste with dramatic rocks raising out of swirling sea with buildings and trees, all on brocade ground. Central peg serving as himotoshi cleverly allows to change the front face of the netsuke as you wish. Superbly precise carving of every element including different brocade patterns on the background of faces and the sides of the piece. Tsuishu is rather uncommon material for netsuke. Very nice piece for collection of various netsuke materials. Length 2 inches.
