Late 19th century boxwood netsuke of a recumbent water buffalo, its head raised and looking to the left, hooves bent beneath its body. Did not photograph well. Perfectly captured posture, wonderful sense of volume. Superbly carved out of beautiful even grained boxwood, excellent patina. Signed MITSUTSUGU on the bottom - the artist is listed on p. 789 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Length 1 7/8 inches.
