Wood netsuke, standing Dutchman with an octagonal hat sumounted by a feather-bush (his long hair ends in a kind of chinese pigtail) and holding a long haired dog. He wears a frock coat of European style (possibly chinese silk) depicting a wave-crest motif . This proto-netsuke combines features from different cultures. Late 17th/early 18th century, Kyoto School, 11cm. Rather rare.
