Early 19th century boxwood netsuke of a quietly floating duck. Very strong early carving with simplified, almost abstract lines capturing the grace of the bird, great face with horn inlaid eyes (right eye is a replacement). Beautiful wear and patina. Recently deaccessioned from the Framingham History Center, MA, where it has been part of the collection since 1923, old collection number in red on the bottom. Length 1 5/8 inches.
