A sumptuous netsuke of two plump young pooches clinging together, the smaller one leaning above the large one, forming a tactile triangular shaped netsuke, with a mirror finished surface devoid of engraved fur lines, only quintessence of aged ivory patina from cream white to gold that emits an even shine. The eyes of both pups are finely inlaid with dark horns. Although absent of a signature, the netsuke is attributed to the Osaka School in the late 18th to early 19th century. A nearly identical netsuke of three puppies seemingly by the same hands is in the Linden Museum of Germany. It is illustrated in Patrizia Jirka-Schmitz’s “Netsuke, 112 Masterpieces of the Trumpf Collection” vol.2, pg. 274.
