Three street performers are caught in the heat of a New Year celebration. The man in the tall hat is a Manzai dancer, found jumping for joy on top of a drum. It appears that he is grabbing the grand prize in the parade, kicking the man to his right, and knocking him off balance, at once cheering with the drummer-turned-drunkard who spilled the wine barrel, and offering to the hovering dancer the last cup of sake -- whose unrestrainted movements effectively integrated three lively players in an impossible situation. The dynamic composition is rendered with minute details, brilliantly executed in a single block of ivory (pole inserted). The netsuke is signed Bunshi. Despite our efforts, no record of the netsukeshi was found in our netsuke reference library; the appreciation for the little gem is further accentuated for its rarity.

Estimate: $1200-1500
