Lot 0006
19th century wooden netsuke of three turtles - one on the top and 2 forming a base, one of them unhappily resting on its back. Superb detailing - see beautifully incised patterns of their carapaces and leathery texture of their limbs. Himotoshi is formed by their feet, wonderful wear and patina, very pleasant to the touch. Signed TADAJIKO in rectangular reserve on the back - the name is female, which is rather rare among netsuke carvers. Length 1 7/16 inches.
