A superb Kyoto school ivory netsuke of Hotei with two karako, by Okatomo. Late 18th century. Seated and smiling contently, the crosshatched robe falling open to reveal his ample belly, while a karako with a fan clambers over his head and another karako holds his arm out to offer a leg-up to his companion. Signed Okakoto in a rectangular reserve. Very good and shiny patina.
