  • About the artworkAbout artwork & Artist
    Meiji period, late 19th century

    Depicted holding a pipe, in Chinese dress, the legs detachable with a rope creating a two-part netsuke.

    H. 7.8 cm

    ​Provenance:

    Collection of the Musée de Saint-Cyprien.

    Note:
    In the 18th century, Nagasaki-e woodblock prints Dutchmen were often portrayed carrying pipes. Still, in netsuke, this is less common, as are the detachable legs, making one hole suffice to attach the rope to the inro.
