Very unusual late 19th century set of 20 ceramic theater mask netsuke mounted on wooden board with old silk brocade front and rosewood frame (the frame is perfectly rectangular, all distortions are from positioning during photography). Excellent modeling, crisp detailing, enamel highlights, slight darkening of protruding parts from wear, very nice patina. The masks are held by lengths of wire, and can be removed from the board if needed by cutting the wires. Board size 15 7/8 X 11 3/4 inches. Average netsuke height is about 1 1/2 inches.
