Condition: Very Good

A well carved netsuke in cream colored ivory, marked with layers and cross hatching, engraved with hairlines and embroideries in sumi and brown pigment, polished to a high hand finish. Natural himotoshi formed by the thongs of the geta. The subject is Issun Boshi, a miniature character like Tom Thumb who traveled to the capital in a rice bowl, rowing with a chopstick, to seek employment when he was fifteen. He became a favorite at court for his fine manners and flute playing and proved himself a hero when he rescued the princess from a pair of ogres. With one blow of a magic hammer he was transformed into a full-grown, handsome warrior. Naturally he married the princess and they lived happily ever after.
