Karako Playing Go netsuke

This fine netsuke carving portrays two karako (Chinese children) jovially playing Sugoroku, a Japanese dice game. The details on this piece are remarkable, from the beautifully rendered garments that the children are wearing, to the dice throwing jar that contains a set of minutely carved dice. The game board is inlayed with black horn and mother of pearl, giving off a particular gleam when exposed to light. The childrenís faces are lightly etched, but with a great clarity of expression.

The piece is signed by Norishige, a native of Edo who was carving during the middle of the 19th century. He is known for his excellent technique in ivory and wood carvings, his lightly carved but elaborate dress patterns, and original designs and subject matter. Asides from a few hairline cracks on the game board and the base, this piece is in excellent condition. A beautiful and interesting carving from a known master of the art.
