A Japanese Netsuke of a Baby Monkey - 19th Century
A most unusual netsuke subject, an endearing baby monkey with doubly- inlaid amber eyes busily sucking his thumb. His expertly carved form with perfect baby ears, expression and carefully incised fur, conveys the collector’s need to “hold-in-hand”. Height, 1.5". 19th century.
