Antique Japanese Antler Netsuke
Shishi
Sitting Lion
Signature: unsigned. Circa: early 20th Century
H. 1.75 in.(4.5cm), W. 1.4 in.(3.5cm), D. 0.7 in.(1.8cm)

Condition: very good!

A proportioned and compact antler netsuke in it's fully realized form without extraneous projections. This Shishi is expressive, with its swirling and trembling forms cut with fluidity and spontaneity, his jaws agape and tongue visible, spiraling tail, whiskers, eyebrows, gripping claws and upturned eyes has the qualities of an imploring pet. When held in the hand, the tactile netsuke reveals a great deal of charm as it is turned round. Spiral patterns on the body echo the curvilinear details in the head and tail where fine carving brings out the chunky fur. Traveled through time, the overall sense of solidity is most pleasing.
