A massive wood manju netsuke
Edo period (19th century)
The thick manju netsuke boldly carved in high relief with a coiling dragon clutching a sacred jewel, the underside carved with dense, swirling clouds, the wood stained dark 3in (7.5cm) diameter, 1 3/4in (4.4cm) thick
- Please note that this netsuke is probably ex-collection Walter Lionel Behrens, no. 1413.
