Hotei Traveling

Signature: Masatsugu, circa: mid 19th Century
Recorded artist in Netsuke, A Comprehensive Study

h. 1.75 in.(4.5cm), w. 1 in.(2.5cm), d. 0.75 in.(2cm)
Condition: minor chips, hairlines!

Well conceived and executed netsuke in aged gold cream patina, engraved flower motifs with sumi, expressive and well carved appealing subject. Happy Buddha Hotei, an Immortal whose enlightened wisdom brings great merriment and benevolence. Here he is simply clad, belly exposed, with a large treasure sack on his back, while one boy is riding on his shoulders, another boy by his side grabbing the walking stick with a mischievous smile. The tiny figures are in three dimensional depth of considerably dynamic gestures. The miniature carving is broad yet ultra fine. A toe on Hotei's left foot and the cloth in his left hand appeared to be chipped; otherwise the netsuke is in good condition.

ESTIMATE: $800-900
