Asian Rarities Enterprises, Inc.
Finely carved rosewood netsuke featuring a version of Oishi Kuranosuke embracing the lovely lady Oyura. In the story of the Forty-seven Ronin, Oyura was the mistress of the villainous Lork Kira. The carving is dark and looks much better in person than in the photos. Excellent condition, with only slight signs of wear.
