19th century Asakusa school staghorn netsuke of obihasami type carved on the front with stems of lotus flower growing through decaying lotus leaf, design with an opening lotus bud continuing on the back. Wonderful Buddhist subject, elegant carving of leaf veins and petal textures. The hooks at the top and bottom of the piece go around the edges of an obi - a sash holding a kimono. Excellent clever piece typical of Asakusa school, warm patina, darker porous areas as is usual with staghorn. Length 4 5/16 inches (110 mm).
