Late 19th century ojime (slide bead for tightening the cord going from netsuke to inro) carved as a seated tanuki (badger) with one of its front paws raised. In Japanese folklore tanuki is a notorious trickster. Excellent carving - see its alert face, finely incised fur, great patina. Height 5/8 inches.
