Late 18/early 19th century netsuke of a sitting Dutchman sharing a laugh with a karako (Chinese boy) standing next to him. The Dutchman is wearing typical European dress and hat, the boy is dressed in a robe with wonderfully incised and etched textile patterns, his hair knots are inlaid with dark horn. Strong early carving, material of characteristic 18th century triangular section. Wonderful wear consistent with age, compressed dust in crevices, yellowing on the back. Cord opening goes vertically through the fold of the robe. Height 1 1/2 inches.
