19th century boxwood netsuke depicting standing Jurojin (one of the Seven Gods of Good Fortune, that of longevity and wisdom) holding a scroll in one hand and a tama (Precious Gem) in the other. Very neatly carved with good detailing, some lint on the surface (needs to be brushed off), wonderful face with a slight smile, beautiful wear and patina, in great condition. Mark illegibly in ink on the foot. The netsuke is essentially a wish for long life and learning. Height 2 1/16 inches.
