Late Meiji (1910s) small ichii (yew wood) netsuke of a resting buffalo, its back covered with a blanket. Netsuke is skillfully carved by a Hida school carver in characteristic ittobori (one cut) style with clever use of wood texture to represent the creature’s fur and add to charm of the piece. For similar examples see Bushell’s NETSUKE FAMILIAR AND UNFAMILIAR, p. 128. Nicely captured posture, wonderful mellow patina. Length 1 3/4 inches.
