19th century boxwood netsuke of Okame washing her face with a sponge while seated inside a wooden bath tub next to a boy who is holding a bowl with fresh water for rinsing. Wood is lacquered in Negoro style - red (or golden brown) lacquer over black, so as it wears the black starts showing, and the the wood. Excellent faces, beautifully worn, really nice feel of age to the piece. Height 1 7/16 inches.
