Gyokuseki, Circa: 1900S'
H. 1.75 in.(4.5cm), W. 1.2 in.(3cm), D. 1.2 in.(3cm)
Condition: excellent!

A wistful expression and a tactile furry pelt are charming characteristics of this antique Japanese ivory netsuke zodiac monkey. He is caught, sequestered and surprised. The monkey’s forepaws curl into tight fists, with supple nearly human fingers. On his left, he holds a well endowed, beautifully shaped, single peach accented by several over-sized leaves that tangle and fall organically down his side to twist and twine with his rambunctious tail. The bottoms of his tightly crossed feet reveal expressive tender soles. Plump and tactile, monkey, the netsuke is stained a warm, highly polished amber that enhances the finely rendered hairlines of the pelt. Signed Gyokuseki, on the bottom right paw, this netsuke is in excellent condition. (SD)
