Condition: Excellent!

This joyous netsuke a father and son, merrily playing with a Daruma doll is possibly celebrating the Daruma festival; the day when Japanese buys good luck Daruma dolls and paint in one of the eyes. If their wish granted, they paint in the other as a sign of gratitude. Slightly worn with an aged look. The style of this netsuke is tentatively attributed to the 19th century. Not unlike many carvers of this time, there is little information available on Ichimasa, whose signature is incised on the base of this netsuke. The ivory is beautifully aged. It appears to come from the tip of a walrus tusk, with a patina varying from a rich gold in the outer layer to white in the inner core. which has worn gently over the years.
