Unusual 19th century Japanese mixed metal scroll weight in a form of a karako (Chinese boy) resting on his stomach and supporting his head by hand, wearing a rich robe and a collar. Pleasantly heavy bronze with gilding on the collar, intricate cloud designs on the robe superbly inlaid with copper and silver, excellent depiction of his chubby face with a slight smile. Wonderful patina from handling, very appropriate piece for scholar’s desk. See 2 more companion boy scroll weights in my catalog. Length 3 1/16 inches.
