Late Meiji (1910s) marine material netsuke of a standing oni wearing tiger skin pants and scratching its head in puzzlement as it looks at an Okame mask in his hand. Somewhat unusual subject, excellent face with open mouth displaying large fangs, horn inlaid eyes. Pleasant finish, nice patina. Signed MEIZAN on the back - the artist is listed on p. 754 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Height 2 inches.
