Antique Japanese Carved Netsuke
Happy Oni
Sitting In Royal Ease
Signature: Isshi, Circa: late Edo, 19th Century
H 1.5in.(4cm), W 1.5in.(4cm), D 1.2in.(3.0cm)

In Japanese mythology, little devils known as Oni are mischievous trouble makers. However, this endearing Oni sitting in royal ease illustrates a common belief: that an Oni can reform from wickedness to good, and ultimately achieve enlightenment through meditation.

Despite its age, this lightly stained netsuke is in mint condition. The superb quality of the ivory is artfully sculpted. On first glance, the initial impression of its cartoonish freshness is delightful to the eyes. Still, on deeper observance, in its totality the fine carving radiates a subtle sophistication that intrigues our mind. Judging from the signature and quality of the carving, we confirm the authenticity of this rare netsuke is by Isshi, an outstanding artist who worked in ivory and Shibayama style. He lived in the late 19th Century Meiji era .
