Toad on Conch Shell Netsuke

A fine example of the work of Tomomasa, a prolific Edo era master of whom little is known, but whose outstanding artistry is immensely popular in the West. He is listed in Netsuke, A Comprehensive Study Based On the MT Hindson Collection by Neil Davey, and The Signature Book of Netsuke by George Lazarnick.

In this brilliant study of a lumpy toad seated on a conch shell. A perfectly balanced and tastefully conceived netsuke. Skillfully carved with exquisitely live-like details in the toad; with an unctuous rendition of the conch shell, like a sea’s jewels as they smoothed from tumbling in the ocean. The contrast is well marked with striations and layering. Aged beautifully in gold cream. Aside from aesthetic pleasure, the netsuke is pleasing to handle. No doubt it has been well loved by its former owners.
