【A wood Netsuke of a rat with its young.】

A young rat clings on its parent’s side.
The well done Kebori (hairline engraving) gives an extra touch to its charm.
The material of the parent’s eyes is black wood.

One of the ears has a very old chip, nicely smoothen by constant wear.
It has a beautiful patina and a set of nicely-shaped Himotoshi (cord holes)

Unsigned.
18th Century.
Size H30mm×W40mm×L51mm
