18th century netsuke of Shoki the Demon Queller standing on rockery as he draws his sword to threatening a terrified oni (little mischievous demon) that he grabs by its back. Excellent strong early carving with great detailing - see bamboo grass on rockery, Shoki’s muscular arms, elaborate robe with fine textile patterns, wonderful faces. Old age lines, black ink highlights to their eyes, very beautiful wear and patina consistent with age. Height 2 1/8 inches.
