Vintage Japanese Carved Wood Netsuke Kirin

Signed. Intricately hand carved miniature Kirin.

 

A netsuke (根付, [netsɯ̥ke]) is a miniature sculpture, originating in 17th century Japan. Initially a simply-carved button fastener on the cords of an inrō box, netsuke later developed into ornately sculpted objects of craftsmanship.
