19th century Japanese bronze netsuke representing a theater mask of Namanari. The mask is mostly used in the play The Cursed Metal Head-Ring for the role of the wife who is crazed with jealousy beyond any possibility of redemption. Uncommon image, very nice casting, cord opening is formed by the bar on tha back, wonderful patina, overall in excellent condition. Height 1 5/8 inches.
