Product Information

An extremely well done and rare 19thC netsuke of the Lunar Hare. It is said that at a certain time when the Lunar moon is just right, the Female Hare will run on the waves, chased by the male looking to mate. This is a top netsuke, in a lovely white ivory ( often used to depict the old age of the Hare in Japanese folklore ) and has some wonderful carving. The movement in the piece is exceptional and this is one of the finest netsuke we have had of this rare subject matter.

The eyes have been inlaid in translucent horn and the pice is signed on the base, but we have not yet been able to translate this. If someone more knowledgeable on signatures than me has some ides, please get in touch. If you collect this type of subject then this will be a great addition to any collection. This was purchased privately from a major collection a number of years ago and will be P.O.A.or reasonable offers.  Only serious offers please for such a quality piece.
