19th century boxwood netsuke of two smaller turtles on the back of a larger one. Did not photograph well. Clever design, excellent depiction of their leathery skin and carapace patterns. Beautiful staining, superb wear and patina. Signed GYOKUMIN followed by kakihan on the bottom - Jugyokusai Gyokumin is listed on p. 426 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. An identical model by the artist from the Hindson Collection is illustrated in NETSUKE by Neil Davey, p. 123, #362. Length 1 3/8 inches.
