19th century Japanese ceramic miniature seal netsuke modeled as shishi - Buddhist lion - sitting on a square base, its head turned to its right. The impression of the seal is shown on the first photo (image is flipped left to right to present the image as it will actually print on paper). Nice modeling, dark olive glaze thinning on raised spots adding the depth to design. Nice patina, left front paw forms an opening for hanging, traces of red seal paste around the base, overall in great condition. Four characters carved seal on the bottom covered with old seal paste. Base 3/4 inches square.
