Early 19th century wooden netsuke of a shishi (Buddhist lion) resting on a base, its head turned to the left. Like any dark object does not photograph well. Material appears to be kurogaki (black persimmon) wood, wonderful object carved with confidence and great detail - see its alert face, bushy tail, well defined ribs and paws. Wonderful sense of volume, beautiful patina, great feel of age. Length 1 1/4 inches.
