H. 3.75 in.(2.5cm), W. 1 in.(2.5cm), D. 1 in.(2.5cm)
Condition: excellent!

This boxwood netsuke depicts a tall and lanky Dutchmen, dressed in long coat with simple design motifs, holding a large dinning knife in his left hand, and in his right hand a napkin held closed to his belly, bulging eyes, large nose and full lips, his face is framed by a stylized wig, with shoulders slightly hunched forward in anticipation for supper. Some netsuke scholars speculate that many of the designs of Europeans were copied not from live models but from ornamental figures that appeared on the stern and bow of European ships during the early 17th century. In addition, stag antler netsuke of foreigners are amongst the oldest of netsuke to be produced in great quantities, as they became a kind of a souvenir for those who traveled to Nagasaki during the western blackout years, hoping to catch a glimpse of one these Dutch traders. Here we have the glimpse in boxwood with an attractive patina. Signed on the Dutchman's clog: Masatsugu.
