ANTIQUE JAPANESE CARVED BONE NETSUKE WOLF IN CLOTHING
I am listing a collection of Chinese antiques that have all come from the same house clearance. I do not normally sell Eastern / Oriental items so my knowledge is pretty limited. I will describe as well as I can but please read everything and study my photos all of which can be enlarged by clicking the image. I expect buyers to ask all questions prior to offerding. Thankyou.
On offer here is an antique Japanese netsuke in the form of a wolf weraing a hooded robe, There is a small purpose drilled hole running through one sleeve of the robe. It is a really well carved, well detailed piece. It measures 2.1 inches high. There is a tiny chip to the base rim of the hem cloak and to his foot. He has a chip to the robe sleeve where he possibly had a hand- see photos and the ends of his staff are missing. There are some age lines which is normal for this sort of material. He is a lovely piece.
