A small netsuke in the form of an oriental immortal (as evidenced by the domed head). The figure appears to be holding a part-shown open parasol. We have been informed that this figure is probably Shou Xing and represent longevity.
We believe this to be a reproduction, although we are not absolutely certain. In addition, we have been unable to decide whether the composition is bone or resin (it’s passed most of the tests for bone that we could think of/carry out). The price asked reflects the uncertainty.
The figure stands approximately 1.75in tall and weighs just over 12g. Exact age unknown but it is believed to have some age. Probably Chinese in origin.
