Late 18th to early 19th century netsuke of a seated mother monkey holding a peach in its hand while its young climbs onto its shoulders. Fantastic contemptuous expression on its face, excellent incised and etched hair, beautiful wear and patina. Nicely chunky, wonderful sense of volume, netsuke of characteristic 18th century triangular section, old age lines. Himotoshi (cord opening) enters through the bottom and exits on the side in accordance with the habit of the time. Comes from the collection of His Royal Highness Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester. Height 2 1/16 inches.
