19th century wooden netsuke of a crouching fat rabbit. Wonderful Zodiac animal with alert face, its whiskers are carved in raised technique, excellent depiction of its body volume, finely carved coat, superb rich patina. Signed TOKO TO (carved by Toko) on the bottom - the artist is listed on p. 1102 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick, and seemed to be particularly fond of carving this model. Length 1 11/16 inches.
