Antique Japanese Netsuke Boy With Cricket 19th Century Red Lacquer Signature For Sale
Fine Japanese Netsuke of Boy and Cricket
This charming Japanese netsuke dates from the 19th century and was once part of the Crane family collection. I was able to buy some of the Japanese things from this collection,
put together by members of this famous American family, makers of high quality paper since the before the American revolution. They still make the paper for the US MInt.
The little boy has apparently released his cricket from under the woven basket that his left hand now leans on. There is a red lacquer signature plaque on the base, bearing one Japanese character.
An old repair shows clearly on my photos, at one time the left hand, basket and the leaf that joins basket and knee were broken away...they have been repaired and reglued well, but a better job could certainly be done.
LENGTH 1 3/16 inches ( 3.1 cm )
HEIGHT 1 1/8 inches ( 2.7 cm )
