Early 19th century netsuke of a snarling shishi (Buddhist lion) climbing on a large ball. Early classic piece with wonderful wear and beautiful honey colored patina. Great face, free rolling ball inside its mouth, excellent hairwork (see its mane and unusually long bushy tail), old age lines, differently sized himotoshi. Came with du Pont Collection provenance. Wonderful sculpture. Height 1 1/4 inches.
