Late 18th - early 19th century netsuke carved as a seated sculptor with a chisel and a hammer working on a statue of shishi (Buddhist lion) on a plinth, and a boy watching the process. Superb crisp carving - see their wonderful faces, postures and textile patterns. Beautiful wear, excellent patina, compressed dust in crevices. Very good netsuke. Length 1 9/16 inches.
