A fun very well carved resin netsuke of a mouse curled into a ball. The carving is very well done with miniscule attention to detail as in the face, tail, and feet. They are very realistic. The mouse is so lifelike down to the the hair.
The hole for the cord is between the foot and the body. There are two Japanese characters on the mouse underside.
1 3/8” (3.5 cm) diameter. Weighs 1.1 oz (30 g)
There is a very tiny rough spot on one ear and a bit of wear to the coloring at a few raised areas.
