19th century unusual bronze netsuke in a form of an eggplant with engraved scene of Mount Fuji, and a silver inlay of a small bird in flight. The netsuke is a small flask - the stem unscrews as can be seen on Enlargement 3. Cleverly designed piece, good detailing, functional netsuke shape, swinging silver loop at the back for hanging. Nice old piece with very pleasant patina. Formerly in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Length 3 inches.
