Antique Japanese Antler Netsuke
Blind Traveler
Knapsag On Shoulder

Netsuke Signature: Unsigned, 18th-19th Century

H 2 in.(5cm.), W 0.5in.(1.25cm), D 0.5in.(1.25cm)

Condition: usage worn, o.a. good

This little netsuke, which is neatly carved into a pleasingly compact shape, is so harmonious in itself that it almost appears to be a natural object. The age of this netsuke and its apparent constant use has mellowed and smoothed the surface until only the deepest lines remain, with a vigor that emphasizes the graphic quality of the work. The deep patina in the recessions is the darkest velvety brown; the highlights are a satiny semi-matte cream color with a golden wash, depicting a traveler standing with his staff and knapsack. All important details are still visible, including hatching of straw on the woven hat. An appealing and venerable carving with all the signs of age and use which are so highly valued in authentic netsuke.
